Maritime Festival in Greenport NY

____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

I was one of several artist who painted plein air in the village of Greenport LI during the “Maritime Festival”.

Each artist painted a scene from a location of their choosing within the Festival and their paintings went into a silent auction, part of the proceeds will be donated to help support the maritime museum.

Bruce was with me for the 2 days, he set up and sold my paintings, entertained the crowds and soaked up the sunshine.

I had a wonderful time painting and talking to the dozens of people who stopped by to watch me paint and check out my artwork.

Hello to all the people I met and thank you

to all the who purchased my art.

Next year I will enter more plein air events around Long Island. This is a great way to spend the time painting and have the opportunity to show my art to a large group of people. I received many very kind compliments, which were greatly appreciated.

Seeing the art being bought by people who expressed a love for it is priceless.


I’ll continue to paint out on Long Island at various locations, if you see me come over and

Paint with Me
