Last weekend I demonstrated plein air painting at Marshall Square park in West Chester to promote the upcoming Plein Air Brandywine Valley
. I painted two paintings of the fountain, one in oils and one in watercolor - using my new palette of watercolor pans from Mission Gold
. The travel set of Mission Gold watercolors was a gift from the Weber
company, who generously gave me samples to give out to all the artists who registered for Plein Air Brandywine Valley and also to all the artists who attended my demo for the Philadelphia Watercolor Society
They also gave me a set of paints to use during my demo, but another artist intercepted my box of samples when it arrived at the PWCS event and took everything, including my set of paints. She boldly announced that she was the one who got the samples for all the PWCS members, and then began handing out my samples to the audience. She even generously offered to give two of my samples to me! I was so flabbergasted by her outrageous behavior that I couldn't find the words, and I walked away. Not to worry, as I work with the Weber company on many projects and they sent me another set in the mail a few days later. It arrived in time for me to use in this demo and also the one I did for Jerry's Artarama last Friday.

Tomorrow night, I'll be at the Painted Bride Art Center
in Philadelphia for the opening of the Bombay Sapphire Artisan Series
Juried Show. I'm thrilled to be juried in this show, which had over 5,000 entries!
Saturday, I'll be demonstrating plein air painting at Winterthur
, beginning at 9am. If you're in the area, be sure to stop in and check it out! I'll be right near the main entrance of the museum, so you won't have to go far to find me.
Next weekend, I'll be demonstrating acrylic painting with Amsterdam Acrylics
and conducting "make n take" classes at the Plaza Art Store
in Towson, Maryland. This is the store's annual Hands On Creativity
event, which features over a dozen different art supply companies and manufacturers displaying new products, offering free demos, and giving away samples. You won't want to miss this awesome event!
