A Brush with Nature – Save the Date March 21-23 2013

Artist love this event because it is so well organized. The public and art lovers from around Jacksonville come out and support the event and its a great couple of days. At a plein air event the only way to find an artist is to follow the tweets!! I always love to paint around the lake so follow me on twitter and I’ll  tweet the location of where I will be painting each day, at the Jacksonville Arboretum and Gardens.
