During the day, you can look for me on the mountain, around the town – painting. I am keeping my fingers crossed for sunny days and lots of snow – that makes for the best plein air paintings. Come by the gallery any time after 3:00 PM; see what I painted during the day. Of course, I will be painting in the gallery too – still developing that plan. Hope to see you there!

This “painting from life” demonstration will show what the world looks like through the mind and eyes of an artist. As Don paints, artists and collectors alike can view the methods used in his approach to painting and teaching. Questions and comments will be entertained and fun will be had by all.
