Santee Rocks

I had my first "Meet Up" with the San Diego Plein Air Painters Meet Up Group at Santee Rocks. It was a great group with friendly artists. I had a challenge with the multi colored rocks but I had a blast being out doors painting with other artists again.

One of the shows at the San Diego Museum of Art is Charles Reiffel, an American Post-Impressionist. He is considered a leader in the California plein-air school of painting. What I enjoyed was seeing a variety of his work in gouache, watercoler, sketches, oils and even crayons. There were many local scenes in the exhibit which included Del Mar, La Jolla and the Old Town Area. Your fee to enter the SDMA includes the show at the San Diego History Center which has more of his work including illustrated letters he wrote to friends.

If you enjoy figures, there is also an exhibit on figures at the SDMA.

Today my husband mounted a HUGE roll of newsprint in my studio. I used to get my newprint in sheets fro the local U-HAUL. I got this roll from ULINE. The witdth is 24 inches. I wrote the date close to the core so I can see how many YEARS it takes to use it up! Probably about 15..
