Plein-Air Paint out, Dec. 18 - Black Diamond Mines

CAA members are invited to join Nancy Roberts' Contra Costa Plein Air group, Sunday, Dec. 18, 10 a.m. - 2 p.m., at Black Diamond Mines Regional Preserve.

From Nancy's post:

Let's go back to beautiful Black Diamond Mines! This time we'll paint in the area around the lower parking lot. You'll find beautiful views of the hills and valley as well as a picturesque old ranch. Please note, my photos are from last spring when the area was super-green. I don't think it's this green right now.

Park in the first parking lot on the left after you drive through the entry gate, then fan out to find your spot. A break in the rain is predicted but it may be a bit chilly, so dress warm. I suggest waterproof shoes, too, since the ground can be soggy in places.

Admission is usually free this time of year, but be prepared to pay a $5 fee if the entry gate kiosk is staffed. Restrooms are open, rain cancels. I hope to see you there!
