Peninsula Outdoor Painters  

9: 30 Tuesdays.  Bring a bag lunch.  Come and Enjoy the day.

We have a large group, so this year we are spreading out.   

On some of the dates there are also alternate locations to choose from.  

If you have a digital camera, take photos of your groups paintings.  Upload them on a free photo site (picassa, flicker, Kodak)  Make sure you select "public "viewing.  Copy the link at the top of the page (browser) and paste the link into an e-mail.  Mail the link to Sue Wilson <> and we will post the link on the website.

Rules for the Open Space Preserves.....and actually, any or our sites.

Yield to equestrians.

Avoid blocking the trails.

Stay on designated trails....that is a little tricky for us, since we cannot block the paths....use your common sense and set up off to the side if it is a narrow path.

Do not dump any dirty paint water or solvents.

Leave your painting area spotless.

Peninsula Outdoor Painters

We are scheduling only one site for every two weeks this year with few exceptions. We are encouraging artists to use the whole day.  

Too tired to paint all day....then paint in the morning and stay for lunch, or come for lunch and an afternoon painting session.  We are hoping more people will be painting in the afternoons, so that when you come in the afternoon, you can expect to see other artists.  A WINTER PLUS....IT WILL BE WARMER IN THE AFTERNOONS!

Occasionally, Diana will be sending you E-MAIL ALERTS, to tell you of a change in the schedule, or to let you know if trees or wildflowers are blooming. For example, if we are having super hot weather and have an inland location, we may switch to an ocean site.  Be sure to check your e-mail on Monday nights in case of a change.
