Plein Air Painting @ Camrock Park - 8am Tuesday Nov. 3rd

Our last scheduled plein air painting outing for this year will be Nov. 3rd in the morning at Cam-Rock Park south of Cambridge (see map & details at the Events Calendar).   There are nice views at Area/Shelter 2 and 3 but we will meet at noon in the parking lot at Area 2 to go for lunch probably in Cambridge.  The weather forecast is perfect and hopefully there will still be some fall color.  (Note: This is a change of dates from the 6th due to much better forecast for the 3rd.)

Lodi Segment of Ice Age Trail

We had our last scheduled outing this past week and had another good group attending.  If the weather holds (I'm predicting one of our warmest falls ever) I might schedule another outing in November.  I want to thank everyone who came out to paint this year.  And maybe some of us can set up some winter outings.

Regardless, feel free to post news or images of your paintings in the winter.   My last painting didn't work out so well so I'm not posting it but will leave with an enhanced digital image of today's fall foliage (from a secret location).

Donald Park in October?

Another outing with good weather but isn't it October? ... so where are the colors?  Here's my green trees and grass.  I swear, the next painting will have orange and red.

We will meet at 3pm at Donald Park off Hwy. 92.  The park is open until 8pm but it will dark long before that!  There are picnic tables there and a restroom.  So far the weather forecast is perfect.
