Plein Air Group - 16 Los Gatos Art Association members took the January Challenge to paint every day in the month and to post the paintings to a private Facebook page. The challenge was announced to the plein air painters, but there were no restrictions on what was painted or drawn.

They also got to know each other better through daily exchanges. It was a great way to start the year and to chase away the January Blues!

He is a true and dedicated master at what he does. He is very giving of his time and attention, and is sensitive and kind in how he dispenses his advice.
