Paint Out, Thurs April 18, at Guilford Green (yes, again)
It's going to rain, very likely, on Thursday. Last week it was remarkably chilly on the Guilford Green but four of us braved it - Betsey, Ed, George, and Veronica. So I'm really not expecting much for this coming Thursday, but if you are truly intrepid and can paint in the rain, the Green has four sides of views that love being painted.
Jay Babina from the MAS Plein Air group tells me about the following:
We have an event on Saturday, May 6 at Hammonasset Park in Madison. It's the Greenway Trail walk / paint out.
The walk is 9-12 and it's advertised by the Shoreline Greenway Trail Association to all its members and there will be additional announcements in many local papers.
We did this two years ago and basically its the same format as then. Last year we got rained out.
We park in the lot heading N of Rt 1 just past the entrance into the park or.... park in the first lot to the right of the toll area. The Greenway trail starts right along the entree into Hammonasset on the right. You can paint along the trails wherever you want. The last time we had that there were quite a few people walking the trails and checking out the paintings and talking to the artists.
We would like to have a showing of the paintings, probably along Rt 1 in the field parking lot or perhaps along the parking lot in the park. We have not finalized all those things as of yet. It's not a bad idea to check out the trail before the event.
You will get further information on all of this as we approach, Saturday, May 6
Mary Beeman tells us about a painting workshop in Italy that she's excited about:

William McCarthy is a local artist who lives in Hamden. Apparently there are still openings for his May and September workshops.
