Patrick Saunders A Triple Crown Winner At 2015 Augusta Plein Air Festival

Patrick Saunders went to the Augusta Plein Air Festival for the first time this year and had a great show of it. His "Stones, Femme Osage" painting, a view of a civil war cemetery near Augusta, won three awards - Best In Show, First Place In Oils, and the Artists' Choice award.

Bob Bahr of Plein Air Magazine wrote a great online article about Augusta for PleinAirCollector: Many Winners at Agusta Event

Here are some other lovely paintings Patrick did during the two-week event.

"Uptown, Augusta, MO" (oil on canvas, 12'x16') - this one is my favorite:

"Peonies" (oil on canvas, 9"x12")
