October 5 – October Paint Out in conjunction with Paint Onancock
Our October paint-out will be on Thursday, October 5, in Onancock, so that members who want to participate in the Paint Onancock Plein Air event can also participate in our ESAL paint-out day. This also gives us the ability in invite out-of-town painters who come in for the Paint Onancock event to join us for lunch and a break at our paint-out location. We are very pleased that our colleague, Jeanette Darnell, is going to host us at her home. For directions click here.We will be painting from 10 am. to 3 pm., with a lunch break at 12:30 pm.
If you have special dietary needs, please bring your own lunch. Otherwise, please bring a dish to share, or munchies and dessert items. (If you don’t cook, these can be store-bought.). And since we will have a few extra guests, please bring a little larger portion than usual.
Don’t forget a chair, drop cloth, bug spray, sun screen, hat or visor – anything else you need to stay comfortable for the day. Looking forward to seeing you at Jeanette’s. Please contact me if you have questions, or need a ride.
