June 20th-22nd: Painting wildflowers: from field to studio. Point Reyes National Seashore, CA. This three day workshop will be held at the amazing Point Reyes Boathouse, near Chimney Rock, where the wildflowers are stupendous, and the views equally amazing.

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!
