I received a nice note today from the “Friends of Hearst Castle“, inviting me to be one of 25 artists chosen to participate in their 2nd annual plein air invitational! A percentage from the sale of the art benefits Friends of Hearst Castle’s artreach program for under-served youth at-risk. Here’s a web page with images from last year’s event.
It should be fun. I’ve driven by the historic landmark numerous times, but never been on the property. Do you have any tips? What do you like most about Hearst Castle?
I’ll be painting there May 12, 13 and the show is June 5, 2010. I’ll post more information as it becomes available. I assume you can visit the landmark the two days I’m painting there to watch, but will confirm in January.
