  1. Looking forward to meeting you all at the Denver 2020 plein air convention. I am finishing a plein air tribute sculpture to be cast in bronze this week. It will be finished by the spring convention. #colettepitcher.

  2. So great to find new artists that I hear about on the Plein Air podcast, and a lot have YouTube channels as well. Fairly new artist, so I’m always looking for good instruction. Thank you! @prettypondart.mandiheaton
