The 12th Annual Paint the Town event came to a close this weekend with the announcement of the main Paint Out winners Friday night and Quick Draw winners on Saturday.

Artists were observed painting en plein air (in open air rather than in the studio) all around Marble Falls and the surrounding area throughout the week. They took time to conduct workshops and brought works for exhibit and purchase at the Lakeside Pavilion gallery exhibit.

The Best of Show winner was Randall Cogburn of Rosharon with an oil painting of the Jolly Roger Boat House in Fall Creek Park and the Artists Choice Award went to and Mike Simpson of Montrose, Colo.

Lee Ricks of Pleasanton won first place with a watercolor scene of the chuck wagon exhibited at Candlelight Ranch. Second place went to Linda Dumont of Austin for an interior scene of Choccolattes in oils.
