I’m interrupting my series on the 2015 WildArt Mongolia Expedition to share some special news!

First up, my painting “Morning Drink” of a takhi/Przewalski’s horse mare that I saw at Hustai National Park in Mongolia has been accepted for the Salmagundi Art Club’s Fall Auction! This will be the first appearance of my Mongolia paintings in The Big Apple and I, of course, hope it won’t be the last. You don’t have to be at the auction to bid. More information here.

Next, an excellent writer, Bob Bahr, has posted two articles about me and my travels to Mongolia from phone interviews we did a couple of weeks ago. One, which emphasizes the land, is now on the Outdoor Painters blog. It’s called “Further Afield: Painting Mongolia”. The second is about the wildlife, particularly argali sheep, and is on the News page of the Susan K. Blackman Foundation website. “SKB” as it is affectionately called, holds a terrific art workshop/conference every year in Dubois, Wyoming. I went in the early years, but hadn’t been able to attend again until last year. The warm welcome I got and the support and interest during the years in between have been very gratifying and greatly appreciated.  The SKC article is called “Susan Fox and the “Last Great Undiscovered Art Destination”, which is what I told Bob I believe Mongolia to be.

Lastly, there’s still time to register and attend Plein Air at the Lost Coast from September 30 to October 4 in Shelter Cove, California. I’m one of the Featured Artists this year! I’ll be giving a presentation about working on location in Mongolia, with some stories about my adventures over the last ten years in the Land of Blue Skies, and doing a demo.

I’m very excited to announce that I’ll be one of the Featured Artists at “Plein Air At The Lost Coast”! This is the second year of this great Humboldt County, California event and I’m looking forward to being a part of it. It will be in Shelter Cove from September 30 to October 4. Registration is open now and you can find out all the details here. I’ll be there all weekend. On Thursday evening I’ll be doing a watercolor demo and giving a presentation on my painting and travel adventures in Mongolia. Readers of this blog know that watercolor is what I take to Mongolia for working on location, as in the example above. The event also has a Facebook page here. Shelter Cove is a small community on the north coast of California, about a five hour drive north of San Francisco. It’s 28 miles west of Garberville off Highway 101. There is spectacular ocean scenery, a black sand beach and hiking trails in the surrounding forest. Come join us!
