FIRST SUNDAY PLEIN AIR PAINTOUTS - Join me, no fee, no instructions. I will put the location and information each month on this web page. This is a loosely arranged gathering. No need to RSVP or e mail, just show up if you can and following the information I put below on this web site. There is no instruction; paint on your own. Just a good location to paint with other friendly artists and to inspire your creativity. 4:00 pm to Sunset (8 pm). Bring your set up and enjoy the evening light to paint on location. p.s. Occasionally I offer a workshop on plein air painting, contact me if interested.
Sunday June 5th, we will meet at Spring Lake Park,Santa Rosa, to paint, go into the Hoen Summerfield entrance side of the park. There is an entrance fee of $7. or it is free if you have an annual membership to the regional parks (I recommend it). Turn right at the entrance booth and drive around to the parking area nearest where you see tall Eucapedus trees, paths to the lake. Look for my red tablecloth on the picnic table. I will be at there at 4:00 PM. Join me or walk to find whatever inspires you. We will meet again at the same picnic table just before sunset, 7:30ish pm for a show of artwork and chat. Sunset is the best time to paint, with long shadows, and the evening light is calm and the air is cool. Join if you can. Google map will guide you for directions. There are two entrances, so be sure you go off Summerfield rd./ Hoen to Newanga entrance.
"Sunset is the best time for me to paint in the lavender fields at Matanzas Creek Winery. Visit their tasting room to see the limited edition print they made from one of my lavender paintings."
