Lecture June 9: “Plein Air Pioneers”

On Thursday, June 9, I’ll be presenting an illustrated lecture about the history and modern practice of plein air painting. I'll reveal the grisly secret of how artists carried around paint before they invented metal paint tubes.

The event is in Poughkeepsie, New York at the Mill Street Loft at 45 Pershing Avenue. Reception at 5:30, and talk at 6:00. Book signing afterward.

More at the Mill Street Loft website.

Yes, you guessed it. I may be a traditionalist, but I'm not about to try that one.
