Plein Air 2009

Well fellow PASSO Members, it's been a long recovery (8 months) but I'm back and ready to fire the starting gun. We had a small start a week ago at Edenvale Winery but winter just doesn't want to let go. There will be updates on our activities calender. If you have found a spot that we might all enjoy, please send in you ideas and if it fits the criteria for an available restroom, then it may get on the list. Lets get some pictures of our paintouts this year and get them posted. The best photo of us on our paintouts will be used on the PAS-SO front page. Yes friends & family may apply.
Send it to me @ passo1004@gmail.com send it as a jpeg file.
We have new members and a new energy, a very fun year ahead, jump in and enjoy.
Happy Painting
Norm

Plein Air take-along - make it yourself ...


Love to do plein air watercolors, but don't have a WC box?

Make yourself a WC paint box from an Altoid's tin ...

MIA popping back in!

Ok, I know I've been missing in action, but have newly vowed to take a more active part in PASSO. I miss all
you guys and the plein air painting. So guess, I have no one to motivate but me! So here I am!

Wanted to share with you all a great potential plein air possibility (actually a big project I've been working on that has consummed alot of my time)! I've created a "Women's Mexico Retreat" for journaling and watercolor sketching, April 12-17, 2009! It will encompass more than just painting, like yoga, writing exercises, Buddist meditation etc. but will be an experiential adventure. Right now air fares are WAY low (I spent $600 for my fare in June and now it is $378!) - great time to book. Anyway, ladies, if you are interested OR know of anyone interested, please pass on this blogsite (for updates, pricing, events etc.): http://www.womensmexicoretreat2009.blogspot.com/

Can't wait for our next outdoor paintout - where you WILL see me! Keep hibernating but, keep creating!

Namaste'
