2017 Cloud Appreciation Contest Favorite Painting:  See full album.

"Q Road Sunset", - Jane Hunt - 10” x 16”, oil. Location: Door County, WI

All PAPNM Member Artists,  Signature Artists and Master Signature Artists are invited to participate in the PAPNM plein air online contests.  In 2018 a contest will be held during each of the four seasons. Suggested locations: paintouts as given on the Paintout Calendar page, though unless otherwise specified, the painting may be from any on-site location. One painting may be submitted for each contest. PAPNM members will vote for their favorite painting after each painting period. The name of the contest indicates the expected theme of the submitted painting. But, for example for the Winter Wonderland contest, some will not be fortunate to see snow this year. It will be more difficult to represent the wonder of winter. How does one depict freezing cold against bare trees if there's no snow or ice? The painting period begins a little before the official start of winter to encourage participation in the Dec. 17th Paintout. If we are lucky there will be ice or snow at least at the beginning of the day.
