December 2007 Paintout Schedule

December is the wettest month in Eugene-Springfield so I have only selected one location per week. This way you can pick the best weather day to appear. I will try to make Wednesday and Friday and sometimes Saturday, but I don't do ice or snow. Any slick streets and I will stay home and I recommend you do too.
See you outside painting.

Dorothy's Birthday Paintout Mt. Pisgah November 19

Monday, November 19, 2007, at Mt. Pisgah, Eugene, Oregon
Dorothy's birthday, we are painting rain or shine. Actually rain and shine. The weather changed every half hour all day long. All the creeks and Willamette River are full from the rain all weekend.

Sherri Mac paints in the rain/sun/rain/sun/....Sherri demonstrated her "paint in the rain with two umbrellas" technique.

Inside we gathered at 1pm for Dorothy's birthday celebration. Brooks, Sherri, Sarkis, Dorothy, Phemie, and Peggie is taking the picture. The new shelter at Mt. Pisgah is dry with lots of windows to enjoy the view...even if not heated.

Sherri, Dorothy, Sarkis, Phemie and Peggie get ready for cake.

After cake the sun comes out and we are back to painting.

Dorothy and her tree. She painted outside even if I photographed it indoors.

Halloween Paintout at UO Pioneer Cemetary

Sarkis can find color on the grayest day. Halloween at the Pioneer Cemetery started out foggy and gray. The sun eventually came out and the color that Sarkis had predicted appeared.

Robin caught the sun and the fall colors.

Paul enjoyed the sun too as the afternoon got warmer.

Mara and Coda sat in the shade and painted the stones and trees.

Dorothy was there painting and sketching.

Brooks came as a black-eyed pea. Unfortunately you cannot see the large "P" painted on his tea shirt. Brooks painted the union soldier memorial, twice.
