Walla Walla!

One of the woman on this France trip is from Olympia and she sent me a link to the "Plein Air Painters of WA," click the image below to see their website:

They plan to be in Walla Walla June 6-10 but it looks like they haven't got a plan yet as to where and when on each day.  I would like to head to Walla Walla on Friday to draw and paint with them if anyone else wants to head over.  I think it would be fun to get to know painters from other areas - it looks like they've got a schedule all over the state for the remainder of the year.  I don't think I'll bring all my oil painting stuff - just my regular sketching stuff, though I may bring a larger tablet of paper to do some nicer, bigger finished pieces.  I'd like to attempt to turn this loose sketching/washes into a fine art and not just a comic illustration because I am truly enjoying doing it and it is a whole lot less stressful than the formal oil painting!


  1. This looks like fun. Give us a time and place to meet and maybe some of the gang will want to tag along.

  2. Nancy says 9am in the parking lot outside the 509 Aerospace: 3311 W. Clearwater, Kennewick.

  3. Sorry guys! They still haven't posted times and meeting place for Friday - as soon as I get it, I'll post it. In the meantime, meet at the 509Artspace like Jim says - 9:00 AM!

  4. I hope you all have fun, can't wait to see the finished pieces. I however will NOT be joining you.. it's that whole working job sort of thing. :)
