Frank Bette Plein Air Paintout

What an event! Alameda has much subject matter for the out-of-doors plein air artist. I painted the ships, a turn of the century Victorian home, an old IH pickup truck, palms at the yacht harbor, an old warehouse, portraits of fellow plein air artists, and more.  Debra Owen, director of the Frank Bette Center, along with her many volunteers, provided a warm and welcoming atmosphere that included an artist welcome dinner, BBQ, and plenty of food and drink. The weather was good, a little wind, some coastal morning fog, and lots of afternoon sunshine, what more you could you possibly want!

Paintings are on display through the month of August at the Frank Bette Center for the Arts. 
Reception August 6, 2010, 7 - 9 p.m. at the Frank Bette center.
