First time for me out painting by the moonlight. It was the perfect September evening out on the Guilford Harbor with my friend Eileen.
We painted from just after sunset to about 9pm.
There were a few folks walking by and we could hear the quiet chatter of the people enjoying a meal at the nearby restaurant.
I could hear the fish popping in the water right below me. When my husband who was fishing on the other side of the parking lot came over to join us. I told him about the fish popping and he dropped his line.
Within just a few seconds he hooked a blue fish. Just a little to small to keep so he tossed the fish back in and dropped the fishing line again.
We went back out a second night and I was able to complete a second painting of this scene.
Thanks for being apart of the journey!
P.S. Join me for an Open Studio Visit this month and next if you live in the area. - go to the Shoreline Arts Trail website to learn more about the open studio and to schedule a visit. Look forward to seeing you!
Our second painting out with the Connecticut Plein air painters society was at the New Britain Museum of American Art in New Britain, CT.
We met up on Saturday September 26- it started off rainy and drizzly on my way up to the museum but by the time we unpacked our gear and found a place to paint the sun came out and it was just a perfect day to paint - together.
I've just stepped into the role of President for CPAPS and there's a lot to learn and organize. I'm hoping we'll have a board soon so that jobs can be delegated and the work load is a little lighter. But I enjoy gather with my fellow artists, finding new places in Connecticut to paint and seeking new ways to showcase our artwork.
This is our 25th year but we plan to celebrate next year because of all the restriction due to Covid. I'm looking forward to meeting new painters and checking out all the beautiful spots in our small but picturesque state!
It was great to be back at the New Britain Museum of American Art. 12 years ago I in the educational department with a great group of ladies. Maura, Morgan, Linda M and Heather. We had such fun and worked hard to promote the education programs and events at the Museum.
If you live in Connecticut and have never visited NBMAA I would recommend that you do -It's a hidden gem of our wonderful state and offers an amazing collection of American Masterpieces. A few of my favorite collections are the Illustration Collection, The Ash Can Artists Collection and of course, the American Impressionists collection.
Pet Portraits make wonderful Gifts!
