We have two plein air paint-outs coming up in December:
Peter Strauss Ranch – Wed, Dec 5, 10am
For nearly a century, people have enjoyed leisure and recreation at this site. Named for Emmy Award-winning actor Peter Strauss, this park delights nature lovers and intrigues history buffs. Oak woodlands, a seasonal creek, easy trails, a lawn area, and an amphitheater provide a wonderful location or visitors of all ages to have fun outdoors.
Near the main house, you will discover an Italian terrazzo tile concert area (1939) where country legends Johnny Cash and Willie Nelson performed in the 1950s. Also, you will see the relic of an enormous outdoor swimming pool with a small stage in the center.
Look for David. If you email David in advance at watercolorists @ netzero.net, he will look for you.
