Paint Out 2023

Paint Out February 11, 2023
Our soaking rains have been a welcome relief in the drought. Although the rain was needed, it necessitated the cancelation of the January Paint Out. So let’s still take advantage of the creeks being full and the vegetation happy by painting in February at Skofield.
The park is in the foothills behind the Riveria on Las Canoas Rd. (LCR) near the Rattlesnake Canyon Trailhead. You may decide to paint in the Park or near the trailhead along the creek. Be careful of poison oak and slippery rocks, especially along the creek! The park has expansive meadows, lots of oaks, large boulders and a peek of the ocean with mountains behind.
Please sign the waiver upon arrival. The sign in sheet will be on a car near the park entrance and will also be available from Fil, Fred or Jerry.
Directions: Please pull up the website for Skofield Park for a map Skofield Park | Parks and Recreation (santabarbaraca.gov) or consult your GPS. Once you get on Las Canoas Rd, from either end, you will find the Park near the middle.
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!
