June Schedule for Painting in Plein Air on Wednesdays from 9:00am to 12:00pm (Give or take). RSVP's are always welcome

June 5 -  West side of Riverbend Park, in Palisade is great place to paint,especially as the spring comes into bloom. You name it, it has it! What you can paint is: Mt Garfield, canals with reflections of the surrounding mtn's, the Grand Mesa with snow, spring blossoming, wetlands, shadows, and birds if you are really fast. You get the idea. There is an outhouse, no water to drink and you might need bug spray something this month. There is shade or sun to paint in. Map to the west side of the Riverbend Park

June 12 - Snook Bottom Overlook. Interesting views along the Colorado River across from James Robb State Park in Fruita.  No Facilities

Directions:  from I-70 and Dinosaur Museum Head, south on County road 340, Right on Kingsview Road. You can get to the overlook by bearing right once after the housing development. It is a great place to paint and overlooks the Colorado River across from the state park.  If you want to swim bring your swimsuit or a light pack to sketch the swimmers.  Link to Snook River Bottom

June 19 - Ute Canyon view in Colorado National Monument. This overlook has great views of the canyon below. This overlook requires you to drive up the east side of the Colorado National Monument which will require a pass or fee. The air will be cooler than in the valley so be prepared. Also bring bug spray and sunscreen. There is not water or restrooms

June 26 - Whitewater Hill Vineyard 220 32 Rd, Grand Junction, CO 81503. (970) 434-6868  Oh My!!! Such great views of the vineyards from above and Mount Garfield is in the background. The panorama view is fabulous   There is restrooms and water.  The owners requested that we do not go into the vineyards to prevent spreading contaminants  and we park along the north side of the fence where the ribbon is.  Keep the parking spaces for the customers. Yes we can do that.  Link to Whitewater Hills Vineyard
