Paint Outs 2013

Just a reminder to all OPAS Eastern Ontario Members.....the blackflies may soon be history....I hope....so mosquitoes and deer flies are happily appearing ready to take up the slack in unceasing efforts to irritate. Despite the insect aspect, the Paint Out season is here.Any OPAS member can schedule a Paint Out and invite Members and non Members as well, to come and enjoy a day or even a few hours of Plein Air painting. We have so many wonderful places in the Eastern Ontario area just waiting to be captured or canvas or paper or in your sketchbook so please feel free to post your event on the OPAS site.Hoping to schedule one in mid June in Blakeney...details to follow shortly.

Weather is STILL a very big challenge here in Renfrew County. Snowing like crazy, however yesterday morning was perfect. I got a phone call from Kathy Haycock to join Linda Sorensen, and Joyce Burkholder for an flash paint out 10 minutes away. Because we live within a reasonable distance to each other this kinda of paint out works pretty frequently, so until we can organize a more planned experience, who do you know in your area who may just LOVE to get that phone call, " do you wanna go painting this morning?"

Good morning !

Sorry to take so long to communicate to you. We have been moving and,well that's been interesting. 

I have decided to try the chair for Eastern Chapter, the first chapter of OPAS, and will do my best to stay in contact, look for or initiate events and in general, hope that we can enjoy the joys and challenges of plein air at least on line. It would be nice to paint as a group at some point for sure. I do know some of you already and am excited to finally be able to paint with you now and then.

Any suggestions, comments, paint out locations and dates, are very welcome.

I'll toast to that!...I'm afraid that anything below about -5C is my Plein Air Limit.....looking forward to warmer....and bug free days!..not sure about the probability of the latter....

Hi Pam, I will freely admit to painting plein air in very cold temperatures! It is not too bad if you can dress appropriately and drink lots of hot coffee. I however believe you don't have to suffer for your art either! So I do look forward to spring's warmer  temps, and the paint not being so stiff, besides myself!

Will look forward to seeing you.

Looking forward to seeing some of you out there painting in this group?

Lynda, I'm ready for summer anytime. Hope to see you then too. Martha
