Los Gatos Art Association Guest Speaker

I was the guest speaker for the Los Gatos Art Association member’s meeting and described the process, tips and tricks of painting Plein air. And then I gave a quick demo of how I approach painting the outdoors. It was an honor to be asked and the next day, we had a few new folks come out to paint with us, so I must have said something to make people want to give it a try…. maybe that Plein Air painting is the fountain of youth?

Painting trip in Brittany, France


I was pleased to be asked to join a dozen artists for 9 days of painting in Brittany, France. What a wonderful experience! No instructors, just lots of painting, exploring, and home-cooked meals to share with my new best friends! I extended my trip with my travel companion, and painter extraordinaire, Jan Norsetter. We explored beaches, parks and the towns of Brest and Dinan. Unforgettable!
