Artist Christopher Reid won another award this week at the Kinston Plein Air Paint-Out in Kinston, NC. The first few hours of the 4 day event were warm and sunny, but the rest of the week was plagued by rain, but Reid chose to paint outside in the rain in the middle of the night huddled under the awning of a shop. One of his resulting nocturnes, a pastel painting named “Vintage”, won 2nd place and sold immediately at the opening of the show.
