August Paint Out Locations
September Paint Out Locations
This week’s paint out will be at Lisa Fairbanks’ garden at Rogers Mesa. Lisa’s garden is overflowing with flowers and vegetables and she has lovely views of the west elks. She has a very shady back garden to make a lovely painting spot. Thanks Lisa for opening your home to us!
Lisa’s Garden 9852 3100 Rd
Hotchkiss (Opposite Rogers Mesa Fruit Co)
Alfred Eames Cellars 11931 4050 Rd Paonia
Dew Lily Flower Farm 42226 Lamborn Mesa Rd Paonia
Holly has a lovely flower garden near Paonia that she supplies flowers for events and weddings mostly in Crested Butte. She cuts less flowers late in fall so there will be plenty of flowers for us to paint as well as views from Lamborn Mesa.
Holly will have some bouquet’s for purchase, but let me know in advance if you’d like some flowers so she has some available for us. She has small bouquets for $16 and larger bouquets for $35 or $64.
TBA - I’m still finalizing this one sorry! It’ll be somewhere with fall colors
Other Artist Events & Opportunities
Please let me know if you have any events or information to share with the group.
For 2024 plein air events, I’m planning to put together a google document with a link so that we can all add plein air events and entry deadlines in the one place.
Let me know if you have any favorite painting spots for fall. The cottonwoods around Ridgway are definitely on the list!
