Our Mission: To promote plein air painting in the State of Washington by providing painting, learning, and exhibiting opportunities.

  • Larrabee, Peace Arch and Birch Bay State Parks

    The sun was bright this last weekend in Bellingham and PAWA painters tackled three different state parks. Joyce Prigot, facilitator extraordinaire shared these thoughts: The state parks around Bellingham were varied in nature: “Larrabee with its bluffs, beach, bandstand music and energy of foot racers crossing the finish line; Peace Arch with its formal gardens, thalo green border crossing signs, grand monument, and lyrical chants of anti- Cuban embargo protesters; and Birch Bay with its semi-circular, textured shoreline and family picnics all around.

    A highlight of the paint-out was the Saturday night after-dinner conversation and critique: looking at each other's work, conversing about painting and painters, and learning about how each of us got into the amazing world of painting”. The group was blessed to have Joyce host a wonderful dinner. Often we paint so long we’re too tired for a little after work socializing, but these times are often the best the friendships we develop are both fun and inspiring. Thank you so much Joyce for your weekend of hospitality!
