Paint out at Lynn Attig’s ranch east of Santa Maria
On August 31st we have a unique opportunity to paint at Lynn Attig’s ranch east of Santa Maria. Lynn is the president of the Pastel Society of Southern California and she owns a working cattle and horse ranch that features an old adobe. This is a popular paint-out location for Southern California plein air artists. The ranch is east of Santa Maria, about 40 minutes south of SLO. We’ll coordinate carpools and paint from 9-12.
