Thank you, Tim Young for hosting (AND for taking the great photos).
We started at 9am and painted until 12, then we met back at the structure to talk about our work. (Well, we had to YELL because of the extra loud freeway noise...but despite that we had an exceptional time).
The Sandy Delta Park used to be a cattle ranch owned by Reynolds aluminum. Now it has gone to the dogs (in a good way)! The park is multi use and dog owners (and dogs) love the large off-leash area. We had three adorable plein air dogs show up today, showing off their considerable romping and cavorting skills.
Chris Rectenwald brought her "Winston" painting and gave Winston to Vicki Zimmerman.
We had two new-to-outdoor-painting youngsters join in today, which was super-special! Thanks, Max and Ada for painting with us today, GREAT WORK! Paint with us anytime--!
(Paint outs take the place of our routine Thursday meeting until we find a new restaurant location. If you are a studio painter, you are welcome to come to the paint out location for art discussion at Noon and bring your current work).
Next Paint out, Thursday August 30, 9am at Irving Park with Host Nancy Smith Klos. Meet at the picnic tables, fan out and paint and reconvene at Noon for lunch and art discussion. (Follow us on Facebook, this blog and our new Google Calendar to keep up-to-date with where we are going).
