Last month went by in a blur! I'd like to take a vacation and rest up for a week or two, but the rest of my summer is booked solid with classes, workshops, and events. Here's a few photos from my recent painting demonstration for the Glouchester County Art League in New Jersey. I started two paintings and worked on both simultaneously, but it was very humid that day and my paint just wouldn't dry so I didn't completely finish either one of them before the end of my demo. I continued my demos during the Open Studio Tour that same weekend, and finished them up.

I also spent a day at Kuerner Farm with the Philadelphia Watercolor Society
last week, and although I had to leave rather early to get ready for the Open Studio Tour I still managed to complete three paintings.

And in other news...
as most of you know, I work with a lot of different artist organizations as a volunteer. One of my current projects is Plein Air Brandywine Valley
, and one of the things I'm doing for that group is getting merchandise donations from art supply companies that will be used as Merit Awards. In addition to sending fantastic items that will be given as awards, some of the companies are also providing samples of their products that will go into the swag bags that are given to the 100 artists who are juried into the event. I got this enormous shipment from Michael Harding Oil Paints
today, containing over 100 wonderful tubes of Ultramarine Blue for the swag bags! I'm so excited to that Michael Harding Oil Paints has sent such a gift! All the artists in the event will get one!
