The Cedarburg Plein Air festival happens every June, and is the largest plein air festival in the Midwest. Every year over 160 painters come to the historic town to paint for a week, culminating with a show of over 500 paintings. The best part of going to Cedarburg, for me, is catching up with all the painters. This year, I was honored to receive an award for my painting Center Line Barn. There are several of these barns with the double peaks around Cedarburg, and the light was beautiful on the evening that I painted.
