We thoroughly enjoyed the work involved in judging The Arts & Letters Club, Washington D.C. scholarship. A challenging experience and we ere happy to call upon our previous experience of judging the Plein Air Paint Out in Tarpon Springs some years back.
All three of us have been working on commissioned pieces this summer. Additonally, we are painting furiously and adding to our upcoming exhibition at Indian Rocks Beach in December.
Giving back to our community is important for us and this year the Plein Aire Cottage Artists are donating this painting by Mary Rose Holmes to the annual Octoberfest at Indian Rocks Beach, Florida

Violetta Chandler has generously agreed to donate a portrait to a worthy cause that provides health care to those without.
The painting will be painted in situ from live model at the Gala in January.
