I'm gearing up for The Waterfowl Festival in Easton, Maryland, November 11-13. Easton is a charming little town on Maryland's Eastern Shore.  Though the show is called The Waterfowl Festival, it's not just about waterfowl.  There are exhibits all over town; paintings, sculpture, world class wood carvers - also fly fishing and retriever demonstrations.  Masterclasses are offered in painting, carving and photography.  Joe Garcia and I will be jointly teaching a one-day Master class in watercolor on Thursday, November 12. As the proceeds of the festival benefit conservation and education projects for the Chesapeake, I'm proud to be exhibiting for my 26th year!!

 From the festival's website:  "Paying homage to the annual migrating Canada geese flying overhead, Easton closes colonial streets, decorates historic buildings with natural greens, and recruits 1,500 volunteers to greet 15,000 visitors and 300 of the nation's finest wildlife artists, craftsmen and vendors with a ready smile and a helping hand. Excitement radiates throughout the town and neighboring St. Michaels, Oxford and Tilghman Island. Enjoy the 41st annual Festival, the tributaries of the Chesapeake Bay, fine restaurants, and quaint shops lining historic streets."

"Waterfowl Festival, Inc. is dedicated to wildlife conservation, the promotion of wildlife art, and the celebration of life on Maryland''s Eastern Shore." In its 41 years, the Festival has become a leader in the conservation of waterfowl and wildlife habitat. More than $5 million has been raised and donated to projects throughout the Atlantic Flyway, and in particular the Chesapeake Bay.

This year, all of the painters will be under one roof in the Armory on Harrison Street.  This is where you'll find me and my thirty+ paintings, including this new 20" x 16" oil Ovation.
