Paint-Out Locations

Thurs, May 23, 2019

27020 Bull’s Branch Drive



Our paint-out for the month will be held at Cannonpoint, the home of Cyndi Downing, near Melfa. Lots of beautiful gardens of various types, water views, an old chimney, and a view of Bull’s Branch. This is a new location for us, so plan to come and enjoy the variety of beautiful painting sites.

As usual, we will be painting (or drawing, photographing, etc.) from 10:00 am. to 3 pm., with lunch served around 12:30. Please bring something for the shared lunch, either homemade or store-bought, along with any serving utensils needed. Cyndi will have drinks available for us in her floral shop. Remember to bring a chair, hat or visor, sunscreen, bug spray, and a drop cloth if needed.


IF YOU ARE PLANNING TO ATTEND, PLEASE NOTIFY GAIL REICHARD BY SUNDAY, MAY 19, at saltmarsh44@verizon.net or 757-331-6231.
