PLEIN AIR PAINTERS OF AMERICA (PAPA) Billups had training in the commercial art field, and knew that consistent and well designed ads were very important, for developing a following, she set up a 10 year campaign for PAPA in which she produced all the ads that has created this AWESOME PLEIN AIR MOVEMENT thru out the USA.

Throughout each year from 1987 thru 1994, she created ads, promoting PAPA in 3 to 5 major publications including: SOUTHWEST ART MAGAZINE, ART WEST, ARTISTS OF THE ROCKIES, ART OF THE WEST, ART TALK, and a few times in Art Connoisseur Magazine.

As a result, PAPA went from a membership of less than 20 members, to a select membership of 35 nationally and internationally known artists, and for many whose names have received recognition thru their association with PAPA.

Also, thru out the USA, there are dozens, if not hundreds of "plein air organizations"...all due to the 6+ years
that Billups created national ads, for PAPA~~~

Letter from another artist:
Betty, your work is wonderful regardless of size. You have the "artist's eye", married with natural talent that you were blessed with at birth, excellent training, great skill, and mastery of the brush and paint. Each painting reflects these things. You cannot go wrong!! Your work is truly beautiful!! Kris Ellen Jenott</break>
