I forgot to show you all my recent painting of Sheffield Mums! I strayed away from my usual painting subjects of seascapes and landscapes, and did a few florals. I entered this painting in the Philadelphia Watercolor Society juried show -- wish me luck!

Lately I've been busy working behind the scenes on the Plein Air Brandywine Valley
competition. This year is shaping up nicely, as we've secured Steve Doherty of Plein Air Magazine as our juror, and we added over a dozen extra awards and some new events. New this year, a Quick Draw in Marshallton and a Nocturne in Chesapeake City are added to the lineup. New locations are being added, too, and this year Jamie Wyeth has invited us to paint at his house! I've been working hard to get lots of additional awards for this event, and I'm working with numerous art supply retailers and wholesales to get tons of awesome merchandise for both the artist swag bags and Merit Awards. Check out the totally awesome Williamsburg Oil Colors
and Qor Watercolors
that will be awarded to some lucky artists!
