Call to Paint Thursday, Feb 4, 11-2, Hammonasset Shoreline Greenway Trail

We are looking at a week of warm weather, though Wednesday is forecast for rain all day and Monday many of us are locked into our all day winter studio.  Thursday seemed like the best day to call a paint out in preparation for an upcoming plein air event in April. The temperature forecast is 46 degrees and mostly sunny so let's plan on 11-2, the warmest part of the day.

The Madison group of the Shoreline Greenway Trail asked our plein air group if we were interested in painting along the Hammonassett section of the Shoreline Greenway Trail on Saturday, April 2.  Madison Art Society did this last year and it was a lot of fun.  MAS will also participate this year.  The event is widely advertised and filled with trail walkers who love to stop and talk and look at your painting.  This year there might be an option for a show at Friends & Co for the works painted that day.

The trail committee also provides golf cart transport to various areas along the trail and frequent the trail during the morning to take people to rest rooms or back to their cars.

You'll notice the boardwalk on the right before you enter the park.  That's the beginning of the trail and can be reached from the campground parking lot where we'll park.  You can walk along the trail to explore where you might want to paint on April 2.

This will be the only posting to the blog for Thursday's paint out so if you are not on my winter email plein air list, please send me your email and I will update you on Wednesday to confirm in case the weather changes and is not conducive to a paint out.

Hope we get the good weather to be outdoors and painting this week,
