Hear what participating artists had to say!
"Watercolor artists…get out of your dry studio and experience your subject up close and in it! The freedom of working outside is an inspiration in itself! I especially enjoyed meeting the artists, and learning how they all overcame the same obstacles and produced winning paintings! I will do it again, rain or shine!"
"I think for a first time event it was managed very well, with a fun group of folks, that it was a pleasure to get to know.
I thought that PAFAC was very generous in regards to awards and providing times for the artists to meet, greet, and eat"
Robin Paul Weiss
"The event was very well organized, and I really appreciated that! I especially enjoyed the opportunity to paint at the winery and really appreciated them hosting us! Overall, it was a GREAT event, and I am really looking forward to next year's. Thank you!"
"I had a great time during my first visit to the Peninsula. It was fun meeting other regional artists and seeing their work!
I cannot wait to attend the Gala next year!"
"I enjoyed meeting so many nice people, and painting with other artists, cannot wait to return!"
"I had a great time painting one of the most beautiful places in America!"
"I enjoyed the entire experience, and felt lucky to have participated. I thought it was very well organized, especially for the very first one. The Friday event at Camaraderie Cellars was really enjoyable, and a great way to get to know the other artists. Everything was well organized and fun!"
"The hospitality was exceptional, it made my first plain air event smooth and unintimidating. The teaching by Ned was wonderful, I learned so much. The landscape was gorgeous! So many excellent places to paint!"
"So happy that PAFAC organized this professional venue in Port Angeles! Camaraderie Winery was very involved as a sponsor. I especially enjoyed the BBQ, and winery reception, so that the artists could get to know each other."
