I love painting outside in Oregon in the Fall. There is good weather and great color. I have had several requests for critiques. This will give us feed back on our paintings of the day. I would like to try is at 2pm, or the end of the day. The google calender at the end of this blog page has each of these paint-outs on it. You can click on the paint-out event and then click on the word "map" and get a google map of the location, or click on "details" to get a description. Please let me know if this technology does or does not work on your computer and browser.
