Jane, Claudia, Lora, Monique, Marnie, Bobbi, and I met at the Santa Clara Central Park on a moody morning. The park was full of activity -busy birds and tiles. It’s fun to hear kids on the school playgrounds! ~Alison
Scroll down for this week's photos and artwork posts, details on our plein air safety requirements and upcoming events.
New: Check out our web site Paintsites Homepage. We updated it to include links to presentations on plein air painting by SCVWS members Dick Zunkel, Uma Kelkar and Edward Rooks. All three links were used as references during the SCVWS Zoom Q&A session on February 28, 2021.
Paint Site Guidelines
Please check the Paintsites website for details including directions and possible cancellations. To keep our members and guests as safe as possible during the COVID-19 era, we must change how we do things. Some of the paint sites have visitor limits. When this occurs we will post the information in paint site details on the SCVWS website. Participants must wear masks and observe the 6 ft. distancing rule. We no longer take photos of paintings on site. Please take your own photo, crop if needed, and submit to firstname.lastname@example.org
