New this month (November 2nd, 2013):
see workshop page for list of shows and events, with links for more information
Painting Mushrooms, Watercolor, Point Reyes, CA, November 8-10, $180 members, $170 non-members Point Reyes Assn.
Not just for fungal paintings: bring whatever botanical subject inspires you; bring whatever media you wish to use. GREAT for beginning watercolorists. I will bring a collection of mushrooms from the Pacific Northwest, where it does rain. My favorite part of these workshops: sharing time with my fellow botanical artists.
Next workshop: March 2014 at the Santa Barbara Botanical Garden.

I will host an Introduction
to Botanical Illustration Workshop on Lopez
Island, WA, or at a location of your choice, if I have enough interest. For more information, email me at email@example.com.
I have posted information
for commissioned botanical illustrations.
This would be of interest to botanists wishing to commission illustrations
and to other illustrators interested in my fees or business procedure.
For teachers: I have posted
a PDF for teachers to use, illustrating different types of inflorescences,
or flowering stalks. And for those learning about botanical art,
I have posted a botanical
art annotated bibliography (first draft).
Happy exploring the wonderful
world of plants & revelling in nature through art!
