ABOUT US

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 great.

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.

PAPME MEMBER DAVID LUSSIER TO TEACH SUMMER WORKSHOPS

HERE IS A MESSAGE FROM PAPME MEMBER DAVID LUSSIER
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
