I’ve cut down on the number of plein air events (one year, I did over 10–way too many!), and instead, are looking for events that will take me to new locales I haven’t painted before.  Just finished Hearst Castle Plein Air, and my next show is in beautiful Door County, Wisconsin (I just mis-spelled Wisconsin, thanks spell check!  I’ve never been to WI). The week-long event is July 19-24.

The list of artists is impressive, most of which I haven’t painted with before, like fellow bloggers Colin Page and Marc Hanson, and old friends like Carole Gray-Wiehman and Al Tofaneli. So, if you’re in the area (which, apparently includes Chicago), visit!  I’ll try and post that week, but can’t guarantee it.  “Job 1” is to paint 🙂  Here are some things to know about the event:

  • Free events throughout the week, including places where you  can watch me paint. If you go and want to hang out while I paint, email me and I’ll let you know where I am (AT&T permitting! #FAIL).
  • Door County is a beautiful place, with 300 miles of shoreline, quaint towns and rolling farmland
  • This is the largest plein air festival in the Midwest, with 42 artists from throughout the US.
