Autumn cometh with it's threat of changing weather. The forecast says "chance of rain" (showers) but our last paint out is close-in and has some covered areas- so be adventuresome and "Carpe Diem !"
We are meeting at Donkey Creek Park (8714 Harborview Dr, Gig Harbor) this week- it is right across the street from the Habor History Museum- lots parking nearby. There is a restroom and there is a new paved trail that goes alongside Donkey Creek- under the road (a good covered place to paint if it rains) and it continues behind the History Museum and over to Austin Estuary Park. I saw Autumn color starting across the street from the Christmas store so bring your primary colors! There is the park and creek, the bay and boats, some fall color.... now all it needs are artists. If the weather is damp and you are not into it- take a couple hours to frame and get ready for the Plein Air Show- a week and half away!
