Paint Out Thurs Aug 3 Stony Creek

This week at Stony Creek. Directions as usual at

Last week, four of us painted at the Medad Stone Tavern Museum in Guilford. The day was a bit grey with intermittent sunshine, but very pleasant. Elena, Adele, John, and Veronica enjoyed the morning. John focused on the horse pasture, Adele on the barns, and Elena and Veronica on the house, which is a complex and interesting challenge.
See you on Thursday at Stony Creek.

Paint Out on Thurs July 27 at Medad Stone Tavern

We will be at the Medad Stone Tavern in Guilford, Thursday morning. This is the tavern that never was - in the early nineteenth century, a developer expected the Post Road to be rerouted and built this tavern on the anticipated road. Turned out to be a big mistake, and the tavern was used as a private residence for a couple of hundred years until donated to the Guilford Keeping Society. Read more about it here:

Last Thursday at the Guilford Landing, seven painters turned up - Tom, Adele, Veronica, Robin, Jeanne, Isabel and Betsey (Adele and Robin for their first time - welcome). Jay came by later on after giving a class at the Clinton Art Gallery. It was hot, but there was enough shade for comfort.

See you at the Tavern on Thursday.

Paint Out at Clinton Landing Thurs July 20

Hello, painters,
We'll be at Clinton Landing on Thursday morning. This is the area in back of the Clinton Town Hall, where the river winds gently past a park area with a gazebo. A beautiful spot to paint. Directions as usual at, right-hand column.
Here's a glimpse. See you there.

Scorching Day at Guilford Marina!

July 13, 2017
Five intrepid painters came out this morning, Diana, John, Gloria (first time out with us - welcome!), Patty, and Veronica. There is no shade at the marina, and it was brutally hot but the threatened thunderstorms didn't materialize. However, despite the heat, everyone managed to paint and be happy. And this location is truly beautiful. The paintings below were from halfway through the morning so not finished, but you get the idea. Next week at Clinton Landing.

Paint Out at Guilford Marina, Thurs July 13

This week we will be at the Guilford Town Docks (Marina) on Thursday morning. Directions as usual at
Last week at Chaffinch Island, six painters came (Diana, Marlu, Tom, John, Isabel, and Betsey). It started to rain at 11.30, cutting the morning's painting short. Let's hope for better weather this week (and better than the photos below, taken last year).

Paint Out Thurs July 6 at Chaffield Island

Paint on Thursday July 6 at Chaffinch Island Park in Guilford

As usual, directions on the blog in the right-hand column.

Last week, Betsey tells me that six people arrived to paint at Hyland House on Thursday under cloudy skies & warm temperatures:  Marlu, John, Diana, Linda, Patty & Betsey.   John & Diana left to paint elsewhere & Marlu & Linda set up to paint across from the April Rose house.  Patty & Betsey painted views from the backyard of Hyland House.  Sun came out before they left.
Thanks, Betsey!

To refresh your memory (and whet your appetite), here are two photos from last year at Chaffinch:
