Time to get out and paint in plein air.

Here is the Schedule for the February. I send these out once a month so place this in your calendar for the whole month. 

February 1st -  Snook Bottom 1:00 pm 

Snook Bottom is an open space along the Colorado River across from James Robb State Park in Fruita. There is lots of dry vegetation, large cottonwood trees along the Colorado River, and big skies.

.No Facilities

Directions: from the Fruita exit on I-70, south on County Road 340, right on Kingsview Road. Continue about a mile to see the Snook Bottom Sign.

It is a great place to paint and overlooks the Colorado River across from the state park.

February 8th - Windgate Dr, Grand Junction 1:00 pm

We are going to paint the boundary of the Colorado National Monument at the mouth of one of the canyons. Please check out the link carefully as it will be hard to find otherwise. Note this is not near the Windgate Elementary school but near where the intersection of Broadway and South Broadway.  There will be limited parking up at the house but there will be plenty of parking out on the street. Bathrooms are available at the house. 


February 15th at 1:00 pm Overlook Colorado River across from Pollock Bench trailhead. Amazing views of the Grand Valley and the Colorado River

February 22nd - Grand Junction wildlife area 1:00 pm. From Monument Road, turn onto D Road and follow it as it becomes Rosevale.  Take Rosevale to C 1/2 Road and take a left.  Follow C 1/2 Road and it will bend to the right and become 25 3/4 Road.  Continue for a couple of hundred yards and be looking to your left - you'll see the parking lot and outdoor toilet.

Head West on Broadway in Grand Junction, and turn left (South) on Monument Road. Then turn left onto D Road and continue onto Rosevale Road. Turn left (East) onto C 1/2 Road. Arrive at the parking lot for Wildlife Area.

If you need better directions, let me know.  I think the weather is supposed to be pretty good!
