The 2-day competition ended mid Sunday afternoon and I managed to take home 3rd place :)
While driving around the area...this old house really caught my attention. It was huge, beat up, on 3 large sets of wheels with a sign reading "Quarters M4". I tried digging up some info on the building and here's what I was able to find.
(gouach on watercolor board 7" x 10")
It's full name is the "Marine Officer's Quarters Building M4" and according to Mare Island's Catalogue of Historic Resource Quarters M4 history is as follows:
Resource Number: M
Resource Name: Officer's Quarters
Classification: City Landmark
Type: A-Single-family residential
All painting were judged by artist, Edwin Bertolet. Both my fellow North Bay Plein Air painters took home awards as well. Iris Sabre took "Best in Show", Sergio Lopez took 1st and 2nd place. Congratulations to the both of them!
