Hello Everyone,

My name is Reid Ramirez and I'm going to Europe for the first time!  I've been invited to participate in an artist residency in the South of France from mid May to mid June along with six other artists.  The residency is located between the towns of Port-Vendres and Collioure, on the beautiful Mediterranean coast. 

Currently, I'm finishing my MFA at Virginia Commonwealth University in the Painting and Printmaking department.  During my time of residence in France I will be making paintings en plein aire, and soaking up the rich local culture.  I plan on painting every day, so I'd love to share my experience with you by sending you one of the works I make from the landscape.

All pledges will go directly towards materials and travel expenses.  There are three different sizes of paintings to choose from.  This is a great opportunity to add an original contemporary landscape painting to your collection, made by an emerging artist.  If you have any special requests, please feel free to contact me at ramirezrv@vcu.edu.  Thanks very much for looking!

Warmest Regards,

Reid
