February 2009 Paintout Locations for Plein Air Painters of Eugene-Springfield

Feb. 4, 6, 7, Wed. Fri. Sat. Amazon Station at 29th St. and Amazon Parkway. This bus station has cover and parking. The views are Amazon Park and Skinner Butte. This is a new location for us, but it looks like good cover for winter painting. And we are close to Market of Choice on 29th. St. for Coffee and food.

Feb. 11, 14, Wed. and Sat., Rosa Parks Sculpture Paintout. Eugene has a new outdoor sculpture of Rosa Parks on her bus seat. It is a small unassuming sculpture, but I feel compelled to capture her in a painting. Eugene Station is now called Rosa Parks Station, 10th and Olive. Some cover, but to get a good view of Rosa we need fair weather. Cover, restrooms and coffee across the street at Eugene Library. I have painted from inside the library in really bad weather. Saturday is a backup day in case of rain on Wednesday.

Feb 13, Friday. Harold and Flora Codman have invited us to paint from their covered decks that overlook downtown Eugene from 1-4pm. Directions: Drive south on Chambers past 29th. St. Turn left at Braeman Village, the second block past 29th.
1557 Braeman Village is on the left. Park in their driveway or along street. Please RSVP so that Harold and Flora will know how many people to expect. Harold and I paint with the Wet-N-Wild watermedia group at Campbell Center every Tuesday afternoon. Last summer Harold turned 90 years old.

Feb. 18, 20, 21, Wed. Fri. Sat. EWEB Plaza Paintout. Cover, restrooms, and a view of the raging Willamette River. The river will be full and running wild. In case of rain we can paint from EWEB's covered porches or under the Ferry St. Bridge or DeFazio bridge.

Feb. 25, 27, 28, Wed. Fri., Sat. Hendricks Park Paintout. Early, early spring at Hendricks Park. South on Walnut St. from Franklin. Left on Summit. We will be at the shelter in case of rain. We will be in the Rhody garden if the weather is nice.

I am checking out painting in the snow. Campbell Center takes snow shoers up to different locations and I have asked if I can go along and paint in the snow. Currently their Feb. 26th and March 5th trips to a cabin near Royce Mtn. are full and they are taking wait-listings. The cost is $30 for the transportation up and back. Leaving at 8:30 am and returning at 5pm. If anyone would like to try to join me on the Feb. 26. trip you can call 682-5318 and get on their wait-list. They usually have cancellations. If this works out maybe we can schedule a trip for just us plein air painters next year ( the van holds 12 people).

See you outside painting,
