"Painting the National Parks"
"PAPME member Michael Chesley Johnson, who has a studio on Campobello Island, NB and Lubec, Maine, is featured in the September edition of Southwest Art Magazine. In an article about 26 artists participating in the Grand Canyon Celebration of Art on location in Arizona, Johnson is quoted as saying, "I'm painting at one of the world's most spectacular locations with some of the world's best outdoor painter's" In celebration of the National Park Serivce's centennial, artists also had the option to paint a scene inspired by any of the parks in the system. Johnson submitted "Towards Otter Point" in Acadia National Park, and the artwork was reproduced in the magazine. To follow his blog posts about the event:

Hi Everyone,My wife Pam and I are new to the group and new to the area. We now live in Somersworth NH since May and have our work at Todd Bonita's galleries in Ogunquit and Portsmouth. We are helping to manage the Ogunquit gallery this season and making the transition to living full time in the area from living and teaching in Connecticut for more than 30 years. We have also been teaching plein air workshops nationally with an emphasis on New England for 25 years and I've participated in plein air competitions across the country since the early inception of these great invents.For anyone who may be interested, I am teaching Plein Air Tuesday's in August for the Ogunquit Summer School Of Art. Here is a link to that.I am also teaching a three day, Wednesday through Friday Plein air workshop for the school in August.I also have added another Monhegan workshop to our September schedule. We've been holding a very successful workshop on Monhegan for 18 years.I believe in a 'Less Is More' approach to painting. I emphasize a simple color palette and strive to make each brushstroke count.If my painting style and philosophy is of interest to anyone, I'd love to hear from you.Thank you and happy painting!Best Regards,David Lussier
