What a fantastic week! I was joined by ten other nationally known artist for a week of plein air painting at Cedar Breaks National Monument. The 10,000 ft. elevation made it cool and beautiful as we painted the striking red and orange cliffs, along with stunning wildflower displays. I did a watercolor painting demonstration on the final day of painting for a delightful crowd during the silent auction. The culmination of our week’s work was a display of all the plein air paintings in the halls of the new Southern Utah Museum of Art on the campus of Southern Utah University. I was fortunate to sell six of my ten paintings on display that night. The show remains on display until September 1, 2016.
