Paint Out Notes, June 21, 2018

Today started out very stormy (with a lot of dramatic thunder)...but we do have a "rain or shine policy" so we will always plan on painting no matter what the weather is doing.   Fortunately for us, after 9am the skies parted and we didn't have rain at all...the watercolorists especially appreciate that)!

Before our paint out began our host Jim Syfert was called away*. Thanks to Tim Young for taking photos for us today and for stepping in as host for Jim!) *Speedy Recovery wishes to Sandi, Jim's wife. We all liked Cooper Mountain Nature Park a lot and hopefully we can talk Jim into being "host"  for it again in the future.

There were awesome paintings painted today; we lined them up and talked about them after the lunch break.

Don Bishop dropped by to say Hi today....It was great to see him...and a new person showed up too---welcome, Kathy Robinson!

Some of us went to an impromptu Studio Tour at Mike Porter's house (which is very close to Cooper Mountain Nature Park). We'll do a separate post about that and share some photos. Thanks, Mike!

Thanks to everyone for coming out today!


* 9am is the recommended time, but come as your schedule permits, bring all your painting/sketching gear and a chair and a lunch.

If I didn't get a good shot of your painting email it to me and I'll upload the preferred version. Thanks again everyone! celesteobergin (at)gmail (dot) com
