SPECIAL EXTRA Paint Out    March 28, Sunday Evening, Moonrise/Sunset Painting,

Arapaho Bend Natural Area located at the intersection of Mariah Ln and Struass Cabin Rd..,Fort Collins

6:30pm - Dusk

Please join me for a moonrise and/or sunset painting! Sunset is at 7:21pm; Moonrise is at 7:30pm. It's fun to paint several very small paintings during this time because the light changes so fast. It can be wonderful to capture the different shapes and colors. I'll be painting several 6"x8" canvas boards. Dress warmly because it gets quite cold when the sun goes down.

Park on Mariah Ln. or at the parking lot one block north on Strauss Cabin Rd. A porta potty is located to the east of the parking lot there.
