Over the weekend I finally went plein air painting with Diana Rogers, who I met here at this workshop on Cranberry Island in Maine back in 2016. Both from Connecticut, Diana and I have been saying since then that we want to get out to paint together, and now we’ve finally done it.
She drove to my neck of the woods and visited my dear New Pond Farm to paint with me. I let her pick the spot where we would sit, and above (9″x12″) and first below (8″x10″), you can see what I painted. You can also see what she did, focusing on the cattails down past the pond. Diana is also a fellow blog reader of yours, and you can check out her website here.
We made her a homemade, heirloom Tomato Tart served with local melon, as shown below. Diana also unloaded lots of unused art materials on me for which I am tremendously grateful!
We had a great time, and I hope we do it again soon.
