PAINT OUTS 



Paint Out October 2021

Alice Keck Park

Saturday October 9, 2021

9 AM- 12 Noon

By Jerry Martin, Paint Out Chair


Alice Keck Park (AKP) covers a full block downtown in Santa Barbara.  It is bordered by Garden St, Arrellaga St, Micheltorena and Santa Barbara St.  There are over 75 species of plants, lawns, a large pond with gazebo and creek, paths, and cottages and churches to be painted seen from the park.  Glimpses of the mountains can be added.  Originally the land was the estate of the painter Albert Herter.  He focused on painting people and the Park always has folk meandering around, enjoying the pond with turtles and ducks and lots of children enjoying the scene. 

As always, please find the sign-in sheet.  It will be on a silver Toyota Rav  SUV parked on Micheltorena St along the park.  Parking can be found on any of the bordering streets. 

We hope to see you there and to spend a little time painting together. Remember that the Paint Outs are open to anyone so you may want to invite a friend to come along as well.

THE JOY OF SCAPE PAINT OUTS 

By Jerry Martin, Paintouts Co-Chair

One of the great perks of being in SCAPE is having monthly collegial paint outs with like-minded nice people.  If you haven't been to one you will be hooked once you do!  It is always fun to paint in new and interesting locations of urban-scapes, landscapes and seascapes.  We meet at a location of scenic beauty often chosen in conjunction with an upcoming show. Whether you are experienced with plein air painting, interested in taking photographs or perhaps drawing for use in the studio later, or just want to share being in natural settings with others, it is worth checking out.

We have enjoyed gathering at Naples with ocean bluffs, agricultural land and mountains; a private organic farm in the Santa Ynez Valley near Buellton; Lake Carneros; an historic adobe and farm on the Gaviota coast, Arroyo Hondo Preserve; and a hilltop avocado ranch in the foothills.   We like to explore new venues, classic locations, and beautiful sights. 

There are certain paint outs that require a reservation as they are being held on private land or lands managed by one of our beneficiaries such as EDC: Coal Oil Point, Sedgwick, Salt Marsh.

As a member if you have access or live in a spot that offers an enticing view and would accommodate around a dozen painters to set up, please contact Filiberto Lomeli or Jerry Martin.  We would all much appreciate new ideas and new locations. Join Us!

RECENT PAINT OUTS





White Buffalo Land Trust-the Summerland Farm

Saturday August 14 8:30 AM -12 PM

350 Asegra Rd

Summerland, CA

The August Paint Out with Scape was at the White Buffalo Farm in Summerland. The White Buffalo Land Trust is committed to land stewardship and to food systems addressing the climate, health and food security. The Trust started the Summerland Farm in 2018 and has this year secured the 1000 acreJalama Canyon Ranch for regenerative agriculture. Please see the White Buffalo Land Trust website for more information and land stewardship practices.

The site has a lot of new plantings which will become more of a painter’s dream as it matures. The higher elevations, which require an uphill walk,afford expansive views of the ocean through the canyon. Closer Summerland hillsides protect the lower area with aloes, pruned avocados, palms and oaks and more open lower growth between.

Thanks are given to Bonnie Freeman for initiating the August Paint Out! 

Bonnie also suggests additional painting topics related to climate change:

  • The iconic Beachside Cafe (threatened by rising sea levels and warming) cafe had to close down, protections needed to withstand the ocean waters that crashed through,
  • Eucalyptus groves where the monarch habitats have been threatened,
  • The redwood evergreen trees that have been devastated up north but are present at the Botanic Garden,
  • Local wildfires,

  • Warm water coral reefs,
  • Arctic warming,
  • Ocean mammals,
  • Bird migration
