Lavender Festival and Umpqua Plein Air 2011

Even though it's cold and rainy out, summer should eventually arrive.  I hope.  With thoughts of balmy summer afternoons in mind, I've been busy signing up for summer painting activities.

The Yamhill Lavender Festival Plein Air Paint Out and Art Show kicks off June 24, with two crazy weeks of plein air madness.  Artists have two weeks to visit and paint at more than two dozen lavender farms in western Oregon.  At the end of that two week period, the paintings are framed (or wired) and delivered to Beulah Park in beautiful Yamhill (30 minutes west of Beaverton) and displayed during the Yamhill Lavender Festival.  Judging and reception are Friday July 8, and the festival is Saturday and Sunday July 9 and 10.  All work is for sale with 15% commission.  It's a fun event to participate in as an artist, and a fun festival to attend.  Music, food, beer, lavender...need I say more?  It's not too late to sign up to participate...  Registration is $25 before June 1, $35 after June 1.

I've also signed up for:
