On Saturday I participated in the 4th Annual Jan and Dan Laytham Riverbend Park Paintout 2009. Riverbend Park is near Great Falls and I started at about 7:30 a.m. I found my spot near the Visitor's Center and had my painting in a frame for judging by 12:30 p.m. This year Armand Cabrera was the judge and my painting received an Honorable Mention for Composition. The show will be up for about 2 weeks in the Visitor Center. See Friends of Riverbend Park for directions.
