California Art Club: San Francisco Bay Area Chapter Quarterly Paint-Out!

Hey everyone,
Gerald and I are both busy this Sunday, and the last Sunday of the month is Easter, so we decided to postpone it(unless someone wants to step up and organize their own Meetup?). In the meantime, this Saturday is the California Art Club paint-out. All are invited! You don't need to be a member to show up. Old Lakeville Road was a popular place when we organized our own meet-up here, so this should be a fun get-together.

                     of the road as you climb up the first hill heading north.  The road
                     is about a mile long -- it's a public road with large shoulders and
                     no traffic, and there is plenty of parking along the length of the 
                     road. Meet back at the eucalyptus grove at 1 p.m. for friendly
                     tailgating - bring your own lunch. You may stay to paint more after lunch.
