Field Mice, Plein Air, Outdoor Painting

Field Mice - Plein Air Painting Group

Greetings to all Field Mice and potential Plein Air painters! Hope to see everyone out and about this season. I would like to know if there is interest in working in a couple of paint outs on a Saturday or Sunday? Please let me know and hopefully we can work something out. Also if you have a favorite Plein Air spot you would like to share let me know! It will be great to meet and greet with everyone again! - Sue

All members are welcome to join the Field Mice paint outs each Tuesday from 9AM to Noon. Come equipped to paint outside (chair, easel, hat, sunscreen etc.)  We typically bring a lunch or buy lunch at a local spot and display our paintings while we eat.  All locations are easily accessible and have nearby restrooms.

Sue Ober provides weekly directions by email.  If you’re not on the list, contact her at:

  • We paint from 9 to  11:30 or 12
  • Some painters arrive before 9 to get the lighting they prefer
  • We stay to share our work over lunch at noon
  • Search the web for more on the locations we visit.
