Michael Orwick and Anton Pavlenko chat with KMUN radio host Carol Newman about the 2015 Cannon Beach Plein Air & More Festival and their collaborative event, Dualing Easels. In this event Michael and Anton face each other over easels. At 20 minutes they stop painting and switch canvases. Four switches in total are made with each artist finally finishing the painting started by the other. This process highlights not only the artists' flexibility but great collaborative spirit and humor. Plein Air & More brings the talented artists represented by the CB Gallery Group galleries and the public together for a weekend of creating amid the surroundings of town, beach and forest. DragonFire artists taking part in the event: Michael Orwick, Anton Pavlenko, Rob Hooper, Deb Steele, Theresa Andreas-O'Leary and Dana Murray. See the slideshow below for glimpses of this year's Festival and Dualing Easels.
