Door County Plein Air Festival

Door County Plein Air Festival

July 24th – 30th

Fish Creek, WI

I am looking forward to another great year at the Door County Plein Air Festival at the Peninsula School of Art.  This is a big event in an amazingly beautiful and historic area.  Every town on this Lake Michigan peninsula is a jewel with shake shingle homes, American architecture, massive historic barns, harbors and quaint small town life.  At times it feels like the north east coast of America.  There is never a shortage of inspiration for painting.  The event itself is one the best organized in the country, with opportunities for the community and collectors to interact with the artists.  Of course, the staff are some of my favorite people in the world with enthusiasm and love for the arts.  A must see event is the lively ‘quick paint’ competition and auction on July 30th from 9-11am.  The opening reception for the exhibition will be the same day from 6-8pm.  It is well worth a visit to Wisconsin to enjoy this event.  You can find more information about the event at

Here are a few of my works from last year.
