September 1st - 3366 C 1/2 Rd, Palisade 9:00 am at the home of John Brennan. This lovely property has great views of Mt Garfield and the Bookclifts, surrounding ranch, and orchards. What is really special is the pond behind the house with a floating dock and chairs. The pond is a little way down a steepish dirt road about 20 yards. Well worth the trip. Sorry I will not be there because I am painting at Spring City Plein Air festival. Thank Bob Martin for setting this up
September 8th - Western Colorado’s Cross Orchards Historic Site - 9:00 am to 12:00 Noon. At the Museum you have the opportunity to step back in time. Stroll around the beautiful grounds and experience historic buildings, railroad cars, and vintage equipment, and agricultural heritage. The large 1890’s built barn/packing shed and bunkhouse are listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Weds are also farmers market day so you might want to paint the market.
Location: 3073 F Road, Grand Junction, CO
September 15th - Bella Bollettino Farms 9:00 am - 3857 N River Rd, Palisade, CO 81526
Save this date. Instead of spending a lot of money going to Italy go paint at Bella t Farms. It will seem like you are in Italy at this newly built villa. It really is something you need to experience. The property is along the Colorado River with organic orchards, events pavilion, and views that will inspire you . There are restrooms and drinking water available. http://www.bellabolettinofarms.com/event-pavilion.html
September 22nd - Powderhorn Ski Area 9:30 am. Fall colors will be changing in late September but where will be the best colors be to paint. I propose we meet at the first large pull-off in Powderhorn Ski Resort area. Take highway 65 up to Powderhorn Ski Resort, turn right into the road leading up to the ski area. Do not go all the way up to the ski area, rather turn into the first dirt large pull-off you come to. Paint there. The views are magnificent.
If the leaves have not turned yet go higher to Mesa Lakes Lodge and if they have already turned go down lower to Plateau Creek mile marker 55 and 54.
September 29th - 9:00 am Connected Lakes. This site is fabulous for the turning leaves of the cottonwood trees, and also small lakes, and native vegetation. Plenty of things to paint. Meet up at the end of the road. If you do not have a state pass make sure to pay the parking fee at self-pay station.
