Painting Plein Air in Yarmouth, Maine

Yarmouth, Maine, for those of you who haven't had the pleasure of visiting it, is a beautiful, charming small New England town about 10 miles past Portland as you travel north on Rt. 295 or the slower, but more picturesque, Rt. 1.

It is a cornucopia of painting subjects and a plein air painters dream!

With all of the above in mind, Yarmouth Arts, according to their web site http://www.yarmoutharts.org/ is "a non-profit organization made up of local citizens committed to encouraging arts and cultural activities within the community of Yarmouth."

This past Saturday I participated, with other plein air painters, in the paint-out called 

CELEBRATING THE CHADBOURN SPIRIT: A SENSE OF PLACE


This is the painting I did  of the local railroad station which is now used as a unique floral shop.

11x14"  Acrylic


My painting setup at Yarmouth paint out.


The juried exhibit and sale is 9/18 - 10/31 at 317 Main Community Music Center which is open Mon - Fri, 10 AM - 6 PM. Reception is Friday, 10/2, 5 - 7PM.

If you can't make it to this part of Maine in the next week or so, I have one word as further encouragement for you to visit....A U T U M N!

PS If you do visit the show take a little longer to scoot around the corner up to  720 Route 1 and visit Yarmouth Frame and Gallery   www.yarmouthframeandgallery.com where you can see several more examples of my paintings along with those of a whole bunch of great artists.  Tell Beth or Lee I sent you.

Take care.
