Prince of Plein Air: Mark Boedges Wins Again!

Vermont landscape painter Mark Boedges seems to be the winningest painter around. His latest coup is taking both the Grand Prize and Artists' Choice Award at the Plein Air Vermont 2013 competition this past weekend in Bennington.

At a reception on Sunday, September 15, Boedges — who lives in Shelburne and has a gallery on Battery Street in Burlington — was presented the awards for his painting "On the Farm," the 14-by-20-inch oil on canvas pictured here.

Just last July, we noted Boedges' wins, for Best of Show and Artists' Choice, at the national-level Door County Plein Air Festival in Wisconsin. Clearly, this painting outdoors thing is a well-chosen métier.

And by the way, this luscious painting is still for sale, according to Boedges' website.

The painter is also featured in the October/November issue of Plein Air Magazine, due out later this month. In Burlington, Boedges' next exhibit at his gallery, titled "Scenes From Shelburne," opens October 19.

Congratulations!
