plein air group

Its been a while. Five of us have joined together and under Jim's co-ordination have formed the beginnings of the NJ art group. Gathered together in Flemington were Jim, Celeste and I on a Thursday night in the park in town. 2 of the members are missing. We have only been at it for a few weeks so hopefully it will grow. It is surprising that people don't know what plein air painting is. Tonight we were in Clinton. The people strolling by with their ice cream and iced coffee, were pleased to see painters out on the street. I will keep you updated as things progress.

new paintings

OK if anyone was wondering. I did not disappear. Just busy. It is funny but after my trip to England I have been in the bit of a fantasy mode. Hence the few drawings. One is a drawing of my grand daughter Abby. I must say I was quite surprised that I was able to capture her image. The paintings are from an art group that I have connected with. Locals would recognize the Clinton Mill. I plan to finish the windows. Jessica was down by the river painting. The floral was at the arboretum in lebanon.
