I've been travelling, painting, and attending six exhibitions and one artist talk lately:
Flora of National Parks

When- Now until Oct.02

Everything's Coming Up Roses
(Display and sales)
When- Now until TBD 2017
Where- Descanso Gardens, 1418 Descanso Drive, La Canada Flintridge, California

Celebrating 100 Year of National Park Service Artist Talk, Channel Islands National Park, Ventura, CA
Botanical Wonders, E.P Foster Library, Ventura, CA, and Oak Park Library, Oak Park, CA
Filoli 18th Annual Botanical Art Exhibition, Woodside, CA
Looking for Flora at Roger's Gardens, Corona del Mar, CA

I met wonderful fellow artists, enthusiastic visitors, and fantastic exhibition coordinators and volunteers at all these shows, botanical art is a very welcoming community, members are always to share the knowledge with others. You'd be surprised that how fast you'd feel like home once you join the community.
For those who are interested in joining, check out this main site:
ASBA American Society of Botanical Artists
You can find regional chapters to join, or just join the main site. You don't have to be an artist to join, as long as you enjoy botanical art!

Here are a few photos of my recent exhibitions:
