Young's Pond -- 10 April 2014
Greetings to All,
We had five painters - Judy, Betsey, Silvia, Jay B-t, and me -- and three just checking out the lay of the land -- Jay B-a, Jeannette, and Elena, who was there and then she was not!? We were a little hard to find, as three of us painted across the street on the golf course. Only Silvia painted the pond, and Jay set up straddling the shoulder line on the road. He was still there when the rest of us left. In an email from him later there was no mention of his getting mowed down by motorists, so I guess he is safe!
Jay's sketches are at a very early stage of development and so do not show clearly in my photos. The final three photos in this sequence were shot by Jay, to use as reference material. I'm always interested in how Jay sees the world.
Beautiful day. Nice to get out again, even though I've been fighting it for the past month. Next week, we'll plan to paint at Madison Surf Club, assuming we have reasonable weather.
Meanwhile, two Guilford shows you might want to check out:
IMAGES 2014 -- 33rd Annual Connecticut Photography Competition & Exhibition -- at Guilford Art Center-- in place until April 26th, after which many of the photos go to CT Hospice in Branford for another month. (I have one modest photograph in this show.) Noon-4 daily, 8 PM on Thursdays
GREENE GALLERY -- Our own (if I might use that term affectionately) GAYLE ASHER is doing a show "We Love New York" with one other artist, opening on Saturday from 5-7 PM. Gallery hours Wednesday through Saturday 11-5, Sunday Noon-4.
