Paint indoors with us?

There are still a couple of places available to paint at the Guilford Community Center for ten weeks beginning on January 9.

Patty McGuire needs to hear from you asap if you are interested. Here is her announcement again in case you missed it. She has paid the Community Center but needs a final number of painters to calculate how much each of us will pay:

Please let me know this week if you are interested in painting at the Guilford Community Center this 2018 winter.

I have reserved The Quonnipaug Room (upstairs) for Tues. afternoons from 12:30 -3:00 pm - Jan. 9 to March 13 with March 20 being a makeup day if we have a snow day.

The rental for the room will be $875.00 for 10 weeks.  (That is $125.00 less then last year.)  We will divide the $875 by the number who sign up.  I would appreciate it if you would let me know this week as I need to pay the Community Center in order to keep the room.  Thanks, Patty


Her email is pgmcguireATcomcastDOTnet.

The room at the Community Center is bright and well equipped with chairs, long tables, and sinks.

Call to Paint Thurs Nov 16 Branford

This week, our paint-out is at the trains at Pleasant Point Road in Branford. Directions as usual on our blog at https://ctsa-guilford.blogspot.com/, right-hand column.

For various reasons I haven't been out painting yet this month. Sally tells me that a couple of Thursdays ago, painters at the dog park area at Young's Pond in Pine Orchard, Branford, included Sally, Candace, and Betsey. Here's one inspiring painting from that beautiful morning. Thanks, Sally!

CTSA Winter Indoor Painting Opportunity

Hello fellow painters.

For several years now, a sub-group of CTSA (actually, some of the original founders of the group) have painted indoors during the late fall, the winter, and the early spring.

There are some spaces available for our winter session, beginning in January. Here is Patty McGuire's announcement:

Please let me know this week if you are interested in painting at the Guilford Community Center this 2018 winter.

Hope to see some of you there along with the old crowd (well, not all so very old actually!).

Call to Paint Thurs Nov 9 Branford Green

Sorry, I see that the schedule of destinations had two different locations for last week. I hope you weren't confused and were able to paint anyway.

This coming Thursday, our destination is the Branford Green. The weather looks OK for the time of year.

Last week at Olmsted Outlook was glorious with brilliant colors. The tide was coming in, so the river rose while we were there. Ducks and geese paraded up and down and hunted for food as the water began to infiltrate the reeds. The sun was warm but the shade was chilly. Joan McP, Jane, Pam, Betsey, and Veronica enjoyed a beautiful day in a lovely spot. We will certainly return there another time.

Last week at Bauer Farm Park, Betsey, Jeanne, Veronica, Gloria, Candace, and Patty painted. It was a little chillier than it has been recently, but the sun shone and warmed things up as the morning went on. A group of walkers came through. The park staff were busy preparing the park for Saturday's Fall Festival, which limited our parking options slightly. But it was just beautiful, warm fall color and sounds. Here are some paintings, finished or not:
