Just north of Phoenix about an hour drive is
Wickenburg, and the Hassayampa River Preserve
is south of town
and quite the lovely place to paint
that the Nature Conservancy maintains
its grounds with the river habitat.
Wednesday a group of us went up for the morning
as the Arizona Plein Air Painters
are having a paint out today Sat Feb 28,
and hang a show of recent plein air.
(I meant to join last winter when
they were founded, but zeroed out
with deadlines. This will hopefully
be impetus to get it together! )
