PAINT OUTS
La Caille Grussendorf
July Paint-Out
La Caille
July 20, 3-5 pm

Our Paint Out for May was at La Caille Restaurant. Fifteen of us thought that it was a perfect way to spend a creative Sunday afternoon! The grounds, the French chateau, flowers and the peacocks provide inspiration for paintings, drawings, and photos. We're returning to paint on Sunday, July 20th 3-5pm. Please join us. August will be an evening paint out on Thurs, Aug 14th 7-9pm at Fairmont Park. Maybe there'll be a pink sky. We need reflections!

This IS a perfect place to paint plein air!
