 First Mondays-PAINTOUT


Monday PAINTOUT - JUNE26th, due to lavender in bloom. This month we will meet in the morning at Matanzas Creek Winery on Bennett Valley Rd. . Check out my "First Mondays Paintout page, on the left of this page for more information and to join us. I usually schedule Sunset Paintouts but sometimes switch to mornings, so best to always visit this web site for details. Always free (or possibly a park fee), no instructions.



"Sunset is the best time for me to paint in the lavender fields at Matanzas Creek Winery. Visit the tasting room to see the limited edition print they made from one of my lavender paintings."
