This year the OPA Great Paint Out in East Boothbay on September 10, 2014 was attended by both the Plein Air Painters of Maine (PAPME) and the Plein Air Painters of the Southeast (PAPSE). The Southeast painters travelled very long distances (Florida, Tennessee, Mississippi, South Carolina, North Carolina etc.) to join us for the event.
The weather was beautiful. The temperature perfect. Everyone had a great time. They would like to do it again next year. In fact we spent the whole week painting together and had a pizza party after the Paint Out!
There were 53 painters in all. What a week!!!!
