Plein Air Convention, Monterey 2015

I am now in Monterey at the Annual Plein Air Convention and it is fabulous! I'm meeting so many wonderful artists here from all over the world and I highly recommend that every artist who wishes to learn and grow tries to attend next year.

I'm not just demonstrating. I'm learning from artists who are so far ahead of me in their art journeys. And I'm learning about social marketing. In fact, I'm learning about all aspects of life as an artist. You would imagine that I may already know how to improve but that's the point in life,the day we stop learning is the day we stand still. And I intend to keep moving!

I will share all I have learned on my blog when I return to UK but for now I'm heading out to the next seminar. I started today at 6.30 am with the first workshop and tonight I'll probably finish at 8.00pm.

See you on here soon !

Happy Painting!
