Opening reception for one of our plein air artists

Ed Magnotti will be having an opening reception this Sat, 5-8, at Branford Art Center, 1229 Main St, Branford, CT.  Ed joined our group and MAS plein air this summer (or was it last year?—they go by so fast).

Hope to see you there.


P.S. Let me know when you are having an opening reception and I will post it here.

Winter Studio Branford Art Center

Jay Babina and I just met with Yvonne Gordon-Moser, manager of the Branford Art Center (BAC).

I know a lot of you are already in multiple winter studios but in case you are still seeking companionship while painting indoors in the winter, we can use the studio at BAC on Wednesday mornings from 9 AM- 1 PM for $10 each.  We can either paint from our own photos or bring a still life to share.

If you are interested, please email me at sbrown01 (at) snet (dot) net.

Hammonasset Shoreline Greenway Trail Feb 4

Eight artists (Cheryl, Jay, Isabel, Betsey, Diana, Anne, Ed, and Sally) arrived to paint at the entrance to the Shoreline Greenway Trail with temperatures in the low 50's.  Though it was overcast, there was a brightness to the day with occasional sunshine breaking through.  Judy, another one of our group painters, came to walk the trail and took some candid shots of us painting.  (Thank you, Judy.)

For those of you who didn't finish your paintings today, would you like to send me a photo of your completed painting and I will post it?  Let me know if you are going to do that.  This will only be for the winter months though when our paint outs are so infrequent.

I hope we get another nice day like today very soon, however, it IS February.  We were lucky today.
