Karen Glines and Billyo O'Donnell received the
2009 Governor's Distinguished Literary Achievement Award
by the Missouri Humanities Council for the book:

Painting Missouri: The Counties en Plein Air

This award “recognizes Missouri authors who have produced books of exceptional quality and significance that have increased our understanding and appreciation of Missouri's history and culture."

Note: The third printing of the book: Painting Missouri: The Counties en Plein Air has sold out.
The University of Missouri Press determined the color printing was cost prohibitive to reprint again.
With continued interest in the book, other options are being sought.
