Plein Air Paint Out

The past few weeks have been a whirlwind, with an art show in mid September, an Art Walk to prepare for and, yesterday, a Paint Out by the Lake in our town. A great deal of preparation went into each of these events, and all went very well!
The Paint Out yesterday was organized by my friend Pam, who is a very talented painter. 


It took place alongside our weekly Farmers' Market at our beautiful Lake Quannapowitt.


Painters registered and then set up their easels throughout the park beside the lake and painted.




We were so fortunate that the rain, which had been consistent the day before, held off for the event.


I helped with registration, photography and other tasks.
At noontime, painters gathered in the center of the park and held a "wet paint" sale! 

It was wonderful to see a community of artists gathered together for such a creative event!

The rain and cold weather resumed today. I'm hoping we'll have some sun this week.

Hope your week starts off well!

Sounds like a wonderful event! It's so nice to read about all your artistic endeavours.
Stay inspired!

Such a great idea! It is a good job that the rain held off otherwise the artists would all be selling abstracts!!! It must be so good to spend time with like minded people. Have a lovely week Judy. x

I knew you would have a great weekend. The weather doesn't look too bad. I hope too that you sold some art at the other events.
