Give painters Liberty – see what Rose up on a Wednesday morning!

Weds. Painters always find places for creating plein air paintings, like the rose garden or buildings in Liberty Station!. We stopped to smell the roses and searched to find the perfect locations. Several of us ROSE to the occasion.and did paint the roses. Gordie, and I did the grounds and Anne, Joanne, Brent, and Barb had a fabulous morning painting the roses red, and yellow and white, and whatever rainbow colors we saw that morning. Join us from 9:30-12:30 any Weds.

We Must Get to the Point


SATURDAY APRIL 14   DEMO PAINTOUT   9AM
Its April paintout time and we have a special invitation to a one hundred year old historic house in Point Loma!  The owner Deborah Reyes Castro has invited us to come and paint an inspirational view or angle of the house, garden, balcony or front
yard and find their muse that will result in a lovely touching and unique anniversary gift she could possibly purchase for her husband.  The challenge is on!

The house was built in 1938 and it is still the same as it was long ago.  The Spanish style is evident in the curved archways, stained glass porticos, grand living room, and a breathtaking view encompassing bay window.  I’m sure we could come up with something to paint.  Deborah will have some coffee and maybe some snacks for us too.!
Chuck McPherson will be our demo artist for this paintout   Chuck will be showing us how to SIMPLIFY  a complicated scene using the rule of thirds and the thoughts of what to edit and why.  Chuck is one of the few artist that can splash paint, talk, sing, dance and produce a painting ready-to-frame simultaneously!  His critiques are very insightful and informative…  Chuck has recently had his painting  “The Art Critics”  published on the cover of The Art Of Watercolor and was selected as a top finalist in their NWS/TAW competition.  A paintout painting “Prado Maiden” is also on display at the Kaiser Central Hospital on Ruffin Road.  Chuck is also teaching many levels of watercolor classes so check out his website chuckmcphersonart.com
 
 Location: 760 Armada Terrace  92106  Point Loma–nearest cross streets being Rosecrans and Talbot St.  IMPORTANT–parking is limited!  You may want to meet at Liberty Station and carpool in or park away and walk in.  Pack lightly since areas around the house are tight.

BlogChallenge– paint or draw devices, computers, phones, cameras, anything mechanical or techno
Get featured on the blog by emailing me the answer to these five questions and some of your artwork.  nice photo of you would be terrific so we can get to know ya! pennirubin@aol.com

Technology can paint pictures too

Joyce Trinh did hers already. Cameras are devices too!

BlogChallenge, paint your devices! Don’t know about you, but my other devices are driving me nuts. I am having trouble getting my photos off my iphone, my computer doesn’t always like to stay on, it jams sometimes, and it doesn’t like to talk to my other devices!! In this “device-ive” world of ours, how can you get ahead of the game? My kids keep giving me their hand-me-down phones and so far I have had to learn three different ones. My camera motor went dead the other day and my new camera is set on RAW and takes two of everything and eats sd card space!

Wish life got easier. So grab a paintbrush or pencil, and draw or paint your de-vice! Don’t know about you but I am having more trouble trying to get my photos from my phone to my computer. And sometimes, my computer doesn’t like talking to
