Mike's Plein Air Painting at Carmel Art Festival Wins Award


"Foggy May Morning": at Carmel Art Festival


Mike Bagdonas's plein air painting, "Foggy May Morning"  was awarded an Honorable Mention in this years Carmel Art Festival's Plein Air Competition in May.  This painting is 20" x 20" on masonite.  Mike was particularly proud of this painting in that on this foggy morning along the California coast just south of Rocky Point and north of Big Sur, the fog kept intermittently obscuring the entire scene.  Thanks to a strong thumb nail graphite sketch of the scene at the very beginning Mike continued to paint.  Mike said, "Even at the end the fog seemed to take over the scene as though nature was telling me it was time to quit".
