Quick Draw at Cape Ann Plein Air Event


"Morning Clouds Lifting, Gloucester Harbor"

Cape Ann Plein Air started on a cloudy, gray morning.

Despite the weather, there were an incredible number of artists participating this year. The clouds started clearing later in the morning and the blue sky was visible by midday. Because we were allowed only 2 hours to complete a painting, I had to keep reminding myself not to chase the changing light and stick with the initial idea.

It certainly was a gorgeous location to paint.

Painting of fruits and vegetables in an August 23rd delivery

When the stores shut down in March, it was really hard to get everyday necessities including fresh produce.  Then my coworker told me about a great produce delivery service and we've been enjoying having a variety of organic fruits and vegetables delivered ever since.

After two months, it finally occurred to me that each box is a great still life possibility.
