"Brought into right relationships with the wilderness,
man would see that his appropriations of Earth`s resources
beyond his personal needs,
would only bring imbalance
and great ultimate loss and poverty to all."
John Muir

PLEIN AIR PAINTERS OF AMERICA (PAPA) was created by Denise Burns, but Billups set up the promotion for PAPA thru 22 full page ads a year from '87 thru '95 which created this AWESOME PLEIN AIR MOVEMENT thru out the USA, placing ads in about 5 major publications, including:
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
