 First Mondays-PAINTOUT

 

CASUAL MONTHLY PAINTOUTS - COME IF YOU CAN.

 

JOIN ME, NO FEE AND NO INSTRUCTIONS; (there may be a park fee at some locations).  Each month you can look on this site for the month's Paintout location and details.  You may e mail me if you are coming; this is appreciated but not necessary (go to my home page for e mail link).  This is a loosely arranged gathering of painters. Depending on the time of year you can arrive anytime and if this is a "sunset" paintout, then paint until sunset.  We will then meet after at a designated place mentioned below to share and visit with other friendly artists; usually the parking area.  I have arranged this paintout for a couple years on the first Monday of the month. Always check back or e mail me to see if there are changes, as things can happen.   Come if you can and paint what inspires you! I arrange the locations by what inspires me to a new adventure and hope you do as well.

First Monday  "OCTOBER 2ND -5:00 pm  PAINTOUT - Lets be adventureous and meet at the Laguna de Santa Rosa for a sunset painting until dusk. We can park on the Occidental Road pull off or on Sanford Ave.just off Occidental Rd.  The Laguna center closes at 5 pm, so we will not be able to park there.    More information below.

 

 

 

First Monday, October 2nd, 5 pm. Meet at Laguna de Santa Rosa on Sanford Ave. along the road or you may be able to park at Occidental turn out. If you let me know you are coming through e mail, we can meet up. The sunsets can be stunning, however if not, the reflections on the water will be dramatic.

LAST MONTH PAINTOUT:  Monday September 4th is Labor day, meet up on the hill to paint the sunset.  6:00 pm is a good time as sunset will be just before 8:00 pm.  We will also see the full moon.  As it turned out the weather was beautiful and well worth the time spent painting the sunset.  I just did a few watercolor sunsets with simple forground painting but the experience of being outdoors is always stunning.
