Happy New Year, Welcome to the 2010s. Winter painting is exciting in the the Willamette Valley. We get clouds, sun, wind, rain, and snow. Sometimes in a single day. I have scheduled paintouts in town with cover and I have scheduled a single location for a whole week. Wednesday, Friday and Saturday. That way we have backups. It the weather is too cold for you on Wednesday, I hope you can come on Friday or Saturday. When the high temp is below freezing I am staying home, but there are so many sunny and 50 days that I am optimistic that we will get several nice painting days in January. Let's continue to have critiques at 1pm when the most painters are present.
See you outside painting,
January 2, Saturday, 11-4pm, deliver your Plein Air Art About Agiculture painting to Emerald Art Center upstairs to the Jaqua Gallery. If you cannot deliver your painting on Saturday, let me know so we can make other arrangements. I would like as many artists as possible to be represented in this show.
January 5-6, Tuesday-Wednesday, pick up your paintings from Silvan Ridge Winery, 27012 Briggs Hill Rd, Eugene, OR between noon and 4pm, This has been a very nice show. If you want to use your Silvan Ridge Winery painting in the Plein Air Art About Agriculture show please let me and Cynthia Nickle, at Silvan Rigde winery, know so they will not get excited when you show up on Saturday, January 2nd, and start taking paintings off their walls.
