April plein air painting day

Not rain, nor hail, nor sleet, nor closed for construction will stop us from getting in some quality plein air painting time!

On Tuesday April 15, we arrived at the John Muir Historical site in Martinez, ready to hike in and find our perfect view among the fruit trees and wild flowers.

But we were surprised to discover they were closed that day to handle a little construction. So we set up camp in the parking lot, where we had a fine, albeit distant, view of John Muir's home.

Here are some of our paintings in progress, from left to right, by Carol Husslein, Cathy McNutt and June Vega.
