Painting With Friends

I belong to a plein air group here in Boothbay Harbor, an informal group of friends who get together on Wednesdays to paint at various locations around the peninsula. The weather has prevented me from joining the group until this week. I was determined to break out of the gray pattern I'd fallen into for the first few weeks I've been here.

A reunion with friends on a bright sunny day was just what the painting doctor ordered. Laughter helped to lighten my mood and loosen up my palette. What I'd been missing painting only in isolation was the banter and inspiration of other talented artists. Although I didn't produce a masterpiece, I did break out of my grays. Here's the result and a couple of my painting buddies.
