Other paint-outs were headed by Monika Johnson at Ski Beach on Jan. 6 and Sand Harbor on Jan. 20. Sorry I don't have pictures from those paint-outs, I was unable to attend.
Today's paint-out was at Hope Valley and was well attended by eleven people. Welcome new painting friends, Evelyn Yonker, Thaleia Georgiades, Bonita Paulis and Nan Lathrop. Also present were Monika Johnson, Bill Tyner, Linda Rosenblum, Karen Mauer, Emma Auriemma, Carol Grigus, and myself. If you were there and I didn't see you, my appologies!
We all met up at the Cafe and got our maps and buddied-up and disbursed out into the field to paint. Because we were so spread out I don't have any pictures of this paint-out. It started out cold, but at times the sun came out and got warmer. Then it got colder around 2:00 but most people were finished by then.
Although we need the snow and rain, this winter so far has been generous to painters out in the field. It has been pretty mild for this time of year and the lack of snow on the ground in Hope Valley made the parking and access much easier.
