16th NBPAP Results - Jenner & Goat Rock - July 18, 2010

Check out the story about the painting trip to Jenner, Goat Rock, Duncans Mills, Christopher Queen & Quercia Galleries on our Meet-up page:

Sergio wrote: "It was a beautiful day for painting, it started off with the coastal fog but quickly cleared up when it came time to paint. It got a bit windy as the time to finish crept up... Getting everybody back to meet up a central area became tough since the parking lots became crowded. Also, cell phone reception is minimal at best. I did circle around the lot at Goat Rock as well as return to the Jenner 'C" Store to see if anyone was there. I then drove to the Christopher Queen Gallery in Duncan Mills where I eventually met up with Glen and Janice. Janice then introduced us to Ron Quercia, the owner of Quercia Gallery in Duncan Mills. He enjoyed our paintings and we enjoyed getting to meet him!"

Janice L-H wrote: " This was a winner. Good views of the hills and the Russian River as it goes out to the ocean. Nice sunsets. It does get cold and foggy in the AM but sun comes out by noon. Views along the road to Goat Rock and pullouts along Hwy 1 have parking for a couple of cars. Jenner Inn Bistro Restaurant available for sit down meals..."

North Bay Plein Air Painters: 16th North Bay Plein Air Paintout - Sunday July 18, 11am-2:30pm

I love painting around Jenner and there is a new art show opening at the Christopher Queen Gallery in Duncans Mills the same day. Some of my favorite meet-up's have been when they tie into other art events.

11:00-11:30 Meet & Greet
11:30-2:00 Painting Time
2:00-2:30 Meet Again, Check out the paintings

It takes about an hour to get to Jenner from Santa Rosa, so plan accordingly.

Our meet-up point will be:

Jenner Sea Store (rendezvous point)
10438 Highway 1
Jenner, CA 95450

There is a good sized place to park on the side of Highway 1 right across from a gas station, so it will be a good place to meet.

Here is the info for the Christopher Queen Gallery show:

Christopher Queen Galleries
#4 John Orr's Gardens Duncan Mills, CA 95430 (707) 865-1318

I will have a few new pieces to show there, so it'd be great if you could show support!
