There were somewhere in the neighborhood of 50 bidders and artists who participated in the Noordhoek Plein Air Festival Saturday, April 7th! The auction was a huge success with part of the proceeds going to crime prevention initiatives for the Noordhoek area. Special thanks to Roger Melvill and Andrew John Hart for organizing the first EVER known plein air festival in South Africa!

I completed 3 plein air paintings in one day: Noordhoek Beach, Chapman’s Peak From Noordhoek Common and Noordhoek Farm Village in order below. Congratulations to the lucky bidder #17 for acquiring my painting, Noordhoek Beach.
