The azaleas are in blooms at Glencairn Garden at Rock Hill, SC. Click on the link for the address and directions. This will be the location for our informal paint out on Tuesday 4/21 at 10 AM. All artists are welcome. Bring your lunch for a group picnic on the grounds. There are public bathrooms and plenty of parking. Hopefully, no rain... BUT if there is, stay home and we will try again next week.

Saw your works from St Simons and Jekyll Islands on FB, Scott. Beautiful!

Plein Air Buds went to church last Tuesday, 3/31! Forest Hill Church South Park Campus allowed us to paint around the church grounds. Seemed appropriate with Easter coming around. Thanks to Susie, Lesley, Dottie, Kathy, Connie, Carols C and P, Deborah, Margaret, Wendy, Sherry for showing up with me. Pictured below is all of us at Ilios Noche for lunch and also Connie with her oils and setup at FHC South Park. Thanks to Forest Hill for being so gracious!

Yellow everywhere near the Nature Museum and at Freedom Park! Join us for an informal paint out at Freedom Park this Tuesday 3/24 at 10 AM. A great place to park is on Princeton near the lake. All artists welcome.

OH MY! There was great weather along with a wonderful group of artists today at Blackhawk Garden Center at Park Road Shopping Center. Thanks to Scott, Dottie, Nanette, Sally, both Kathys, Jan, Suzanne, Deborah, Jennifer S, Jim, Margaret, and I know I must be leaving out someone, for coming out. Thanks to Vincent and Michael at Blackhawk for all their help and kind tolerance for our invasion. I took so many pictures... such lovely plants and unique garden knickknacks! We've got to do this again.

Great Scott! Looks like we'll have about a dozen coming. I will need to save a few spots! Thanks!

Debbie, I hope to see you there early tomorrow!

Plein Air Buds will have an informal paint-out at the back of Blackhawk Hardware 4225 Parkroad Shopping Center, Park Road Shopping Center, Charlotte, NC 28209, Tuesday 3/17, at 10 AM. Take the road by Michaels and drive to the back of Park Road Shopping Center to the Garden Center. Please do not set up in the Fire Lane or on the parking medians. Stay on the parking lot. I will save some parking spots close by. Afterwards, we will eat lunch at one of the restaurants nearby. Hope to see you!

The Plein Air Buds will be at Freedom Park on Tuesday 2/10 at 1 PM. Yeah, it's a bit cold but not too bad if you dress warm and bring some hot tea along. Come and go as you please or stick around for coffee someplace afterwards. This is a very warm group! Oh, and most of us will park on Princeton at the duck pond.
