2016 Oldfield show wrap-upTuesday, October 25, 2016 by Steve Hill

Summer Drama, Tuscany
Summer Drama, Tuscany
These are two of my old favorite plein air paintings that sold at the live auction in "The Oldfield Show", last weekend at the Expo Hall of the Washington State Fairgrounds in Puyallup, Washington, October 7-9. One was done in Tuscany (that storm almost got me!) and the other at Mazama Valley, in Washington State, both from 2008.

I am indebted to Joella Oldfield for my first invitation to exhibit and sell at this prestigious event, while I was off gallivanting and painting in Moab, Arches and Zion National Parks the same week. Also, many thanks to artist, Mary Wolfe, who set-up and watched over my exhibit booth during my absence!

I will definitely be going back again in October, 2017, to hang more work, do live painting demos and participate in the quick draw events in their 20,000 square foot space, with over 70 artists from around the U.S.

By the way, Fred Oldfield, namesake for this show and western artist emeritus, is 98 years into his storied and successful art career that started at his birth place in Weiser, Idaho (my home state) to Washington State . . . and he is still painting! I know a handful of artists out west, who have travelled by horse-back or Model - T Fords in their own lifetimes, but precious few who have ridden in covered wagons, as Mr. Oldfield has done.
