Suggested Paint Out Locations and Important Dates
We are making “suggested locations” for painting because The Columbia River Gorge is such a varied, vast area. Also, the weather is incredibly changeable in The Columbia River Gorge, it has been a very windy summer for 2016. We hope you find this information inspiring and helpful in deciding where to paint. Talk to other painters and exchange mobile numbers to track each other down for group painting locations depending on the weather and time of day, or try using the app Waze. We know you will find your own path of inspiration and follow it.
