Labor Day Weekend, August 31, September 1 and 2
Join us for an instructorless three days of painting en plein air and/or in studio in the Central Coast of California!
The Blue Moon Ranch and Blue Moon West are about 20 minutes Northeast of Santa Maria on CA highway 166, with plenty of painting subjects for pastel artists!
Enjoy a 50-acre horse ranch with white fences, oak trees, two barns, horses, a house and other outbuildings, including an empty chicken house, along with a very large indoor art studio and outdoor covered patio. Some of the horses on the property are an Arabian, a Quarter Horse, a Tennessee Walker and two paints, one of which looks a bit Mustang-like. Horses of many colors!
Down the street five more minutes is Blue Moon cattle ranch, with lots of cows, hills, a river, historic redwood barn, old adobe structure and plenty of wilderness to photograph/paint on another 450 acres. Also enjoy nearby vineyards and coastal scenes galore.
There will be no workshop fee! You will just pay for your own hotel accommodations and can contribute to a group food budget if you wish (optional).
