  1. To Eric Rhoads, Thank you for making Jim Wodarc,s video Composition for Painters available to everyone at no cost. I have found it very helpful and I really appreciate your generosity. It’s a special gift to the whole plein air/landscape community.
    Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!!!

  2. I tried to renew my annual subscription to Plein Air, earlier this year, but was told that the US mail wasn’t being sent Australia, I was advised to subscribe to the on line version, which I did. I was only able to access one issue, the September 2021. I haven’t been able to get any more. I feel cheated, as I paid my money in good faith. Is it possible to convert my on line subscription to a hard copy one ?

    • I hope they resolved your subscription problem. I love PleinAir, but have had nothing but trouble with my subscription. Can’t change my address reliably or find out when my subscription expires. Very poor management.
      The zinio reader for the digital edition is a nightmare. I don’t understand why they don’t just offer a simple pdf download version for the print&digital subscription.
      I’m cancelling when my subscription ends. Not worth the aggravation.

  3. TO THE EDITORS: My New Jersey nonprofit organization is planning a small juried plein air program. Is there somewhere we can post a call for entries on or plein air magazine?
