HIGHLY RECOMMENDED ARTICLE by Lyn Boyer: 8 Seconds.  On the Oil Painters of America blog

Members and the public were invited to paint alongside or watch the participants at the hosted paint outs. Please be mindful that the participants are involved in a competition and are focused on their work. Some are able to be more social than others while painting, so please respect their time and space.
