Dear fellow OOPS artists...
Happy New Year... here's to a GREAT 2008!
Please use the comments section of THIS post to list any ideas you may have for our group this year...
Ideas such as "paint out" locations, dates, workshops, trips, or anything in general that you come up with.
Many of you have recommended locations outside of the county... that is fine for an added "paint out" but I feel with the upcoming show in June that we need to stick to locations within Onslow County since that is how the show is promoted. However... we can take a plein air trip and paint anywhere.
I can't wait to hear your ideas...
Onslow County "paint out" location ideas:
~ Haybales at a local farm on Ramsey Road in September.
~ Street Scene (Urban) of the New City Hall on New Bridge Street.
~ The Averitt House (Historical site at Catherine's Lake).
~ Palo Alto Plantation on Belgrade/Swansboro Road.
Plein Air Trip ideas:
~ Catch the Ferry at Cedar Island for a day long plein air trip to Ocrakoke Island.
~ Draw Bridge in Surf City
Various ideas for the group:
~ Paint a nocturnal (night) scene.
~ Paint urban scenes.
~ Have a live model pose for the COLD weather months (Jan/Feb).
~ Set up a still life for the COLD weather months.
~ Have a workshop during the COLD weather months.
~ Take a trip to the NC Museum of Art in Raleigh together.
