FREE Plein Air Classes at Valley Forge

Free Plein Air Painting & Drawing at Valley Forge Park 
This is a great chance for beginners and veterans alike. Painters can enjoy nature's glory at Valley Forge Park with supportive guidance by instructor Randall Graham (for those who need/want it). Everyone is free to paint or draw (or photograph) whatever they wish. Randall walks around to everyone and helps with any questions or concepts/advice. He also gives tips on basic Plein Air concepts –advice on good locations, composition, how light will change, and good color recipes for a given landscape. At the start of each session, park rangers will give a brief description of the history of that day's location. Please feel free to email Randall directly with any questions:

100 Paintings for $100 at The Chester County Studio Tour
to May 19

100 Paintings for $100 at The Chester County Studio Tour

I will be offering 100 different original paintings for $100 each during this year’s Chester County Studio Tour. My Studio is #23 on the tour map. It is located on the second floor of Gallery 222.

Years of sketches, scribbles, ideas and experiments have added up. I prefer they live in a collectors home than in a pile in my studio. These paintings are incredibly important to my process and are representative my uninhibited artistic voice.

They are mostly oil, mostly on paper, mostly 5” x 7”ish or 8” x 10”ish. All unframed.

Some are rain paintings studies, some are color studies, some are landscape notes, some have paintings on the back, some have haikus on the back, some have my 4yr old son’s drawings on the back, some have grocery lists on the back, some of them suck, some of them are brilliant, all of them are fun!

I will be posting preview pics of them on this page leading up to the event. You are welcome to purchasing any paintings I post before the event...just let me know and we can arrange the payment and delivery.

As an even bigger bonus...purchase 3 of these paintings for $250. They look better in groupings.

Lastly, when purchasing one of these...remind me to sign it😉

Thank you!!!
