Thank you for the info Rich. I am connected with Lori on FB and was just checking with her on how to attend the paint out for the AIS members. What a small world. :) I hope I'll meet her in person and if you come would be great to meet you too!
I'll look in to the Moab plein air next year, I want to try something different.

Oh, sorry, Tonya.  Moab is in Utah.  I'm thinking of going, myself.  Anyway, have a great time in Carmel.  My good friend, Lori Putnam is the AIS show chairwoman this year.  Maybe you'll run into her there.  If you do, she's lots of fun to paint with.  Be well.

Thank you Rich! I don't know about Moan plein air, where is that? I am taking a working and going to Carmel for the AIS show and paint out in October. Not sure my schedule will allow to attend this year but I can look in to it next year.

Great pics, Tonya.  Are you doing the Moab plein air event in October?
