Rockport Plein Air

The heat made for a great day to paint at the beach. So, because I had to deliver to the Rockport Art Association in Rockport, guess where I painted?

Painting Plein Air for the Hearle Gallery in Chatham

Things have been crazy busy!!! After painting in Rhode Island for the opening of the Lily Pad, I headed down to Chatham to paint plein air for the week. I left for the Cape early Monday morning and painted till Weds. evening. Thursday I went back down and delivered my work. That evening, the Hearle Gallery had a lovely function for the artists participating in the show opening Saturday. It was great to see a lot of my artist buddies there.

Wollaston Beach at Sunset

Both Kacie and Glenn were home with a stomach bug, so I headed to beautiful Wollaston Beach and painted two canvases. I sold the first one off the easel. That warmed me up to paint the second one, this beautiful sunset. Sunsets are difficult to paint because it changes so quickly. You basically have 10 minutes before it is gone.
