We absolutely could not have had a more perfect day for the first Hike & Sketch of 2013! The Paintouts over the past three months have presented us with some challenging weather (to say nothing of fierce wildlife) --- but no such challenges this time. The last Fremont Older Hike & Sketch several years ago was sparsely attended as only Jenny & Sylvia braved the elements to produce some wonderful atmospheric, "rainy day" paintings. And although one might not recognize it was the same location, the dozen artists participating this time produced some equally fine paintings --- again proving just what a talented plein air artist can produce in only 20 minutes!

The vistas from Fremont Older are a joy, and this was a perfect day to paint them. Last time Jenny and I were hiking here it rained. See painting below. Sylvia

This paintout let me see a new side of Fremont Older Open Space.You "take me places where I've never been before!" One observer of my paintingthought that aliens were about to land. (They must have waited until after I left...)Thanks again for the tea party, Caroline
