Call to Paint -- Thursday, 24 July 2014 -- 9 AM
Greetings to All,
The Florence Griswold Museum in Old Lyme has something for just about everyone -- water, gardens, interesting architecture, figures, and a bit of vista, looking down from the lawn to the Lieutenant River which reaches way back into the distance. So hopefully all those summer family plans will not keep too many of us away from this week's paint-out. This is the reschedule of our June outing which was postponed because of rain.
We're seeing a modest chance of some showers on Thursday, but this time of year, they are more likely to come in the afternoon. We can hope.
Although I've posted the start time as 9 AM, I'm hoping to get there closer to 8, so I can take a liesurely walk around and shoot some photos and get a feel for where to paint. So if you come early, you likely will have company. But be mindful, if you need a bathroom, the museum does not open until 10.
Directions may be found on the blog on the Directions page.
Again, please park in the lot behind the little Chadwick Studio, to leave the more convenient parking space open for regular museum visitors. Also, plan to bring your lunch, and we will find a comfortable place to sit and enjoy the ambiance and chat for a while after our wrap-up.
I'll hope to see you there.
