OOPS August Paint Out set for August 28th in Richlands.

Click HERE event link below for all the details about our August Paint Out at the William and Terry Fields property in Richlands.

August 28, Onslow Outdoor Painters Society (OOPS) Paint Out (noon until) is confirmed. This paint out was organized by Jim Phillips... 

Dean Remington and Jim Phillips were out on a plein air trip recently and ended up knocking on the door of Mrs Terry Fields (a retired Onslow teacher) who very graciously allowed them to paint her old sheds, and barns around a beautifully maintained large yard.They mentioned our OOPS group possibly coming there to paint and she graciously accepted. She is very excited about having the OOPS group on the 28th of Aug. For those who have GPS devices the name and address is William and Terry Fields at 266 Fowler Manning Rd. Richlands, NC.

Below are paintings by Jim Phillips and Dean Remington done on location at the Field's prpoerty.

If you painted there during our May Paint Out... please bring your finished painting (gives me a good excuse to finish mine). If you didn't attend... here's your chance to paint at this awesome site.
