A few years ago four professional plein-air painters from the Boothbay region were at an opening. (Corinne McIntyre, Roger Milinowski and Ron and Monique Parry). Ron said, "Since we all usually paint by ourselves why don't we go out every Wednesday and paint together". And so the "Plein Air Painters of Maine" was born. What started out with just four of us now has six Chapters with over 572 members. At any given time in the summer there can be 14 to 20 people painting. In the winter there may only be two or three hearty folk. But the interest has never subsided. The comraderie, exchange of ideas and just plain fellowship with other painters is so rewarding.

The Boothbay Region, in fact, all of Maine, has a wealth of subject matter to paint. The sea, the coastal rocks, endless skies, seabirds, lobster boats, docks, fish houses...etc. It is so beautiful. A painters paradise.

Any painter is welcome to come paint with us. Just contact either Gmail below and we will let you know where we will be.


We shall post news of shows, awards, and other exciting things that happen to us. Send any news you would like others to know about to cmcintyrepaintings@gmail.com.

Carol has done it again! Here it is in her own words.
"I am very pleased to announce that two of my paintings have been accepted for display in the St. Louis Watercolor Society's annual show.  One of the paintings, "Falling Down, Falling Down", has also been chosen for an award. I am especially proud of the fact that the juror was nationally known painter/teacher/editor Christopher Schink. The opening reception will launch the month long exhibit at the Creative Art Gallery on Ivanhoe in west St. Louis on Friday, April 12th from 6:00 to 8:00 with the awards to be presented at 7:00.
Come one, come all!"
