Summer Painting Ideas

Pierre Auguste Renoir's painting of Claude Monet painting his garden

A couple updates to casual paint-outs you should know about:  Sue Davis's planned paint-out for June has been rescheduled tentatively to July due to pesky cedar mites near her home (aargh!).  Sue tells us the heat kills them off and they should be gone by mid-to-late July.  Also, Bob Dalegowski has a June 14 paint-out planned jointly with Northern Arizona Watercolor Society members.  Check the APAP website for more details coming soon.
Here's a neat opportunity for you and your paint-out partners: PleinAir Magazine is looking for plein air paintings of painters painting plein air for its "Painter Painting" feature on the last page of each magazine!  Yep.  Paint a plein air piece, and include another artist in the act of painting outdoors, then send a high-resolution .jpg of your artwork as an attachment to an email providing the title, size, medium, year, and artists involved to: steve@pleinairmagazine.com .

If you weren't among the lucky folks who made the trip to New Mexico in May to the joint paint-out with Plein Air Painters of New Mexico, take a look at APAP's Events page, and scroll down a bit.  Founding Member Jane Newman was kind enough to send a few photos from her trip that we posted as a slideshow: http://www.arizonapleinairpainters.com/ .
