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. Email the photos to Sue Wilson <email@example.com> and we will post the photos 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!
