Saturday February 12, 2022 – 9AM-Noon
Our Paint Out for February will be at Ellwood Mesa. This property includes Ellwood Mesa and Bluffs, Santa Barbara Shores Park and the Coronado Monarch Butterfly Preserve. There are thick eucalyptus groves, fields, bluffs with trees, and of course the ocean. On the entrance side of the property one will enter some woods. Monarch butterfly’s have returned here for years and might be seen in the higher branches especially towards the east, to the left. Beautiful sights abound.
Directions: Take Santa Barbara Shores Dr towards the ocean off of the 7600 block of Hollister Ave. At the very end of the road is an open gate into the woods and on to the ocean. Parking will be along the Santa Barbara Shores Dr. and adjacent roads as close to the gate as available.
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!
