UPDATE: The Feb. 26 plein air paint out has been cancelled due to rain. See note at the bottom of this post to connect with Nancy Roberts' schedule for future paint-outs. Stay safe during blustery stormy weather this week.
CAA members are are invited to Nancy Roberts' Plein-air Painting sessions on Wednesday, February 22, and Sunday, the 26 at Oakley Orchards, while they're still in bloom. From Nancy's post:
We'll be painting along the Marsh Creek Regional Trail just south of where it crosses Delta Road. There's a big orchard with Marsh Creek in the foreground and Mt. Diablo beyond, and a smaller orchard right next to the trail for great close-up views. The small orchard has a mix of trees, some in bloom and some not yet.
The address you can use to find our spot is 750 Delta Rd., Oakley. Parking is along the shoulder of Delta Road (be sure to leave the bike lane clear). Marsh Creek Regional Trail is a wide, paved trail with plenty of room to set up our easels along the sides.
Please note, there are no restrooms at this location, but shopping centers are a short drive away. Admission is free, rain cancels
