April greetings. Above is a painting from the Southeastern plein air festival in Gadsden AL, a week ago.  Its a great event and i always look forward to participating.
Several events upcoming.....The inaugural Olmstead Park Plein Air Festival, April 22-26 in nearby Atlanta, is one of the most heralded events ever. I will competing with 29 other fantastic U.S. artists in this beautiful linear park.
