This Week

I am gearing up for plein air season again, with the annual Augusta event starting later this week into next.  Although I will not be able to participate on weekend days due to schedule conflicts, I will be painting at Augusta Shores this Thursday, April 24 and will participate next week from Wednesday, April 30 - Friday, May 2.  And be sure to catch me at the sale on May 4.

I am also offering the first of my series of professional practice seminars through Capital Arts in Jefferson City.  This 3-hour seminar will discuss Entering Shows, Professional Presentation & Writing Your Artist's Statement.  Participants are invited to bring a proposal, artist's statement and/or other writing to share and for feedback.  More information can be found on the 2ndStory Space blog here.
