Paintout August 17th at River House Eugene Oregon

Paintout at River on Friday August 17, 2007. Myron joined us from California. He promises to return next summer. Myron attended Sarkis' workshop last week here in Eugene. He is holding his oil painting of the Greenway bike bridge.

Mark joined us also. He actually painted the River House.

This is the view of the Greenway Bike bridge that I was also painting. Judy painted this same view, but I forgot to take her picture. I apologise Judy.

Using this calender: click on event and an event description will pop up. Click on the word "map" and a google map will pop up for the paintout location.

Calender changes for August:
August 15: King Estates...I called and confirmed that their gates open a 8am. We can arrive anytime after that.
August 24-25: Was not good for Sweet Cheeks. So we are changing to Coburg park, downtown Coburg. Take Coburg road from Eugene one block past the Pearl St. (the road to I5), turn right one block and the park is right there. There is water, bathrooms, and shade. Views are old houses, street scenes, the Coburg Hills and park scenes. Enjoy. I moved Sweet Cheeks to Wednesday, Sept. 5, 2007.

Dorris Ranch and Oakway Center, August 8, 10, and 11th, 2007

While Sarkis, Phemie and I were in a plein air workshop all week, Rod and Mark were painting at Dorris Ranch and Oakway Center. Here is Rod and Oakway. They closed the ranch to visitors and started spraying something while Rod and Mark were there...but, as usual, Rod and Mark stayed and painted, spray or no spray.

Here is Mark painting in the bright sun at Dorris Ranch.

August 10 and 11, Rod and Mark painted at Oakway Center. Notice that Mark did move to the shade to paint a Oakway.

Pam and Mark and I showed early. Sally and Yvonne came later, but I missed taking their picture.

Pam creating a wonderful watercolor.

Mark painting with oils.

The ducks pestered me until I had to put them in my painting. A young girl walking by asked me how I got so good at painting. I said it is just like playing the piano....practice, practice, practice. Today I am practicing my ducks.
