One focus for the days we were together was to paint on site, outdoors. Medford offered "the Grapes" unlimited opportunities to enjoy the beautiful weather while creating art. Not all of the artists were comfortable with on-site painting, but they knew they were among friends and there was lots to learn.

Please scroll down to enjoy the outdoors experience.

Everyone loved the Madrone Trees, especially Colleen. Until now, many of"The Grapes" didn't know where she got her ideas about red trees.

gorge painting

Colleen and Mark have found a cool spot in the 104º temperatures. The rock outcropping overlooking a rushing river brought the temps down by 20º. "The Grapes" took over the lookout and enjoyed a long afternoon of painting.
