I'll be demonstrating painting en plein air at Mill Grove, the home of John James Audubon at Valley Forge
tomorrow. I'll be painting with both watercolors and oils from 11am to 3pm, and I hope you will come out to watch! This event is free and open to public.

In other news, I'm thrilled to show off these fantastic brush sets from Dynasty Brush
! These aren't mine -- these wonderful sets are going to be awarded as Merit Awards in the 2016 Plein Air Brandywine Valley! Each of these 4 awards contains over $200 worth of awesome artist brushes in a canvas roll.

As many of my closest friends know, I serve on the Board of Directors of numerous artist organizations and I volunteer countless hours in the arts communities. I love that my decades of experience organizing juried shows, plein air events, workshops, and my years of teaching, writing, marketing, sales, and my business skills and computor skills, and so on, can go to good use by helping artists to succeed. I'm thrilled to join the committee of Plein Air Brandywine Valley
this year, and one of the things that I am coordinating is donations of top quality artist supplies and equipment for Merit Awards in this year's competition. The incredibly generous gift from Dynasty Brush
is the first of several to arrive.
In addition to getting great merchandise for awards, I'm also helping to organize a Quick Draw and a Nocturne event to be added to the line up for the first time this year, and we've already secured a top judge for the event, Steve Doherty
. It's going to be our best year, ever, and we're just getting started!
