6th Annual Plein air Convention & Expo

San Diego, CA

It is a pleasure to serve on the faculty of #PACE17. This will be my 6th year and I am just as excited as ever. Having demonstrated several times in the past, this year I will be taking a more relaxed role as a field instructor. That means I will be painting every afternoon, demonstrating in the field, and helping other attendees with painting questions. If you are coming, I certainly hope you will find me. I am always happy to be of assistance.

Also be sure to stop by the Gamblin Oils, Rosemary Brushes, Raymar Art, and EdgePro Gear booths. I'll be providing helpful advice and demonstrations throughout the convention in those booths as well.

If you have yet to register, I hope you will consider it. There are only a few seats left! 

As good fortune would have it, the pre-convention workshop is with my wonderful friend and mentor Quang Ho. This is not a conventional type of workshop. You will not be painting along. Instead, you are invited to absorb as he demonstrates and presents his visual approaches to painting. Personally, having studied with him many, many times, I still cannot wait to be part of this. Every artist, no matter what level, should attend. If you possibly can, plan to add on this extra to your convention registration. It is truly a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity!
