Late afternoon out for another fishing and painting excursion with my hubby. We headed toward Harkness Memorial Park in Waterford but not sure if the park was open to the public.
Plan B, took the Lyme exit, rounded the bend and headed down Ferry Lane to Ferry Landing State Park where the DEEP headquarters are.
It's a small park but right on the water. Plenty of fisherman lined the railing along the path and the park. Once I got use to the sound of the bridge alarm and didn't jump out of my chair each time it went off I fell into my art zone.
From the lapping water to the boaters enjoying the day made such a pleasing background sound as I worked away on this smaller canvas. The sun was heading toward the golden hour and the sky offered soft pastel colors of pinks, peaches and yellows.
I might have painted the American flag a little too small in the painting - it's a really huge flag if you see it in person. At one point I thought I hear thecaptain of the boat start the engine and I panicked. Should I paint faster? or shot a photo before it departs. Thank goodness the boat stayed parked and I could finish the painting after all.

Painting with the Madison Art Society on Wednesday morning.
Such a beautiful day the temperature was perfect, the gardens were blooming and a nice group of painters showed up.
We love going to the Florence Griswold Museum not only for the beautiful scenery and the endless possibilities of painting subjects but the staff is so friendly and helpful.
And... they gave away small clipping of plants from their garden!! How kind and generous!
Already planning a trip to return -

I just love the way this piece looks in the frame! This painting would make a great gift for garden lovers!

My husband had the day off on Friday so we decided to head out to find a spot along the Connecticut River for a fishing/painting excursion. We decided on the Haddam area near the Goodspeed Opera House.
I walked around the property a few times and settle on a spot that would capture both the bridge and the back of the building. I did a color study in my sketchbook using gouache paints and then back in my studio I completed this painting.
The area of Haddam brings back a host of memories from my 20's when I worked in the Marketing Department at American Cruise Lines. It was in the late 80's where we would order mailing lists, hire graphic designers to do mechanical boards and go on press checks. How things have changed.
Framing is included - other framing options are available

Update on the Madison Art Society Wednesday Paint Outs: Each week we've been meeting up on Wednesday mornings to paint together. I volunteered to organize the paint outs this season. Due to the current situation of Covid -19 I chose places where the group is familiar with an where we have access to public bathrooms. (very important)
I'm also on the hunt to find new locations for the group to paint for new inspiration. I think this a perfect location and I'm sure they'll enjoy it very much!
