Painting The Petaluma River?

Yes…in an artistic sense

A little background is in order to set the stage for this story

The Petaluma Water Ways Open House was held at the Lucchesi Community Center on January 11, 2011. Basically, it was a forum to announce a coalition of all the “river groups” with the City of Petaluma to promote and improve public access to the river.  There was quite a turnout and the story is ably covered by Patch and Petaluma 360.

I stopped by to check out the scene for “photo ops” and free cookies. 

I had nothing particular in mind until I spotted Kim Grisell, Area Director, Boys & Girls Clubs of Marin and Southern Sonoma Counties. She was serving as “art director” for club members engaged in the Paint the River project. Without question, a group of children with finger paint and water-color paints is a great setting, irresistible in fact. Seeing nothing of Petaluma Pete or his piano, I decided to “poach” on his blog beat and turned on my camera.

Alas, I have no video and no piano.  But perhaps a few stills may be sufficient unto the story telling cause…

  1. Great shots Frank. The cookies must have been good…they gave you inspiration. Not to mention the material you had to shoot. I’m sure PP would have loved to be there but you done good. Tom
