Demos and Plein Air!

We are fully into Fall, and the busy season has begun! This past Sunday I demonstrated watercolor painting for the Philadelphia Watercolor Society's Annual Meeting. It was a great event, and attracted several new members to the organization. As a popular bonus at the end of my demo, I gave away about 30 door prizes of art supplies, plus everyone in attendance received a free sample of Mission Gold watercolors. I'm so happy I was able to arrange for the donation of the Mission Gold watercolors for the Watercolor Society -- they were a huge hit with all the artists in the audience!

Tomorrow, I'll be demonstrating Plein Air painting with oils and watercolors at Marshall Square Park in West Chester, Pennsylvania for Plein Air Brandywine Valley.

 Next Friday, I'll be demonstrating seascape painting with Mission Gold watercolors at Jerry's Artarama in Wilmington, Delaware.

This time of year, I often have up to 3 or 4 different events each week. Check out my Calendar Page to see where I'll be next!
