I was invited to do a demo for the Buffalo River Artisans Guild last Saturday so I traveled up to Marshall, AR in the heart of the Ozarks. I was hoping the weather would cooperate and enable me to do a plein air landscape painting but with the heat, I thought it would be best to keep everyone inside. I had never done a demo like this in front of people who would be watching everything from beginning to end and expecting some commentary. But as it turns out, this was a great dry-run for something I will be doing this fall. I have been selected to be Artist in Residence on the Buffalo National River in September. In association with this, I will be giving a workshop so the experience here was invaluable.
This painting will be auctioned by the club in August.
