Gold Country Plein Air
Directions to Paint-out Site Saturday, May 5: From the west, Highway 108 through Oakdale. Skip the first "Sonora" exit and turn right at the next exit, Limekiln Road. See signs for Mountain Springs, 2 miles. 17566 Limekiln Road.
From the North: Highway 49 through Angels Camp, on to Sonora. Stay on Washington Street (same as 49 until the stoplight), do not follow 49 to Oakdale. Washington Street crosses Highway 108 and changes name to Limekiln. 17566 Limekiln.News!
(4/14/07) The location for the paint-out is on the Mountain Springs property. Not the golf course, but on the ranch area. With rolling hills, oaks, wildflowers, barns, cattle, ponds, it's just perfect! And very beautiful. We will have a crew out there on Saturday morning from about 7:30 onwards helping you find parking and the artists. This is going to be a great spot and I can't wait to see the paintings roll off the easels.
Artists will arrive and be ready between 8 and 9 a.m. and will paintuntil 2 p.m. Parking will be near the artists on a dirt trail, or at the golf clubhouse parking lot a short walk away. Lunch at Birdie's Cafe at the clubhouse until 3 p.m. And a porta potty onsite. All the modern conveniences. Bring bikes or a picnic lunch, hats and cameras, make this a fun day. Think about bug spray and sneakers and sun lotion.
Also here is back yard view in Monrovia. 9x12 oil on linen panel. This is a departure as I didn't paint my usual ground color-- this is pure canvas. Feels a bit washed out, but it sort of suits the white light that was the moment.
