I've finished my 50 paintings for my "50 Project" , having set that goal for myself to paint 50 plein air watercolor paintings in my 50th year. After a very busy several weeks of matting and framing in late October 2013, the paintings went on tour, starting at the Colchester Meeting House in November, then on to the CIC Gallery (The Essex Reporter and Colchester Sun offices) in December, on to the Emile Gruppe Gallery in Jericho, VT Jan 15 - Feb 23rd, to the Richmond Free Library for the month of March, then to the last of the large scale exhibits at Artists' Mediums, Williston, VT May - July, 2014.
One event remains to finish out the 50 Project Tour:
Sunday, October 5, 2014 at The Gallery at WREN, 2013 Main St, Bethlehem, NH, I'll be teaching a Plein Air Watercolor Workshop 1 - 3 pm (registration required) then giving a free Artist's Talk & Trunk Sale of 50 Project paintings 3 - 5 pm, Call (603) 896-9736 or click HERE for more info and to register.
In 2011,2012 and 2013 I participated in several Plein Air events in Vermont. In July it was the Vermont Plein Air Festival at Emile Gruppe Gallery in Jericho, VT, which had about 75 artists registered each year, with more on the waiting list. See me there again in 2014 on July 19th! In late September 2012, I participated in the Vermont Plein Air Octoberfest in Stowe, VT. See my blog for more photos and information about these wonderful events. Such fun! Unfortunately, the VT Plein Air Octoberfest in Stowe has been discontinued. Lots of work to organize these events...
