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 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.

HOSTED BY THE LAKES REGION ART ASSOCIATION

This is the perfect opportunity to paint in a heavenly location in the lakes region of NH...

The Lakes Region of NH is beautiful. Sparkling blue lakes, mountains, islands and big summer skies are waiting to be painted. There is nothing like spending a nice summer day painting under towering pines, breathing in fresh country air and watching the sun change the colors of the mountains. We are painting all day in a private location on a lovely lake. I can hardly wait to paint at this beautiful house in Belmont, NH on the shore of Lake Winnisquam !

This day long workshop will help the student slow down and focus on completing one painting on location. This workshop is at a beautiful, private, lake front location. The day will start with a demo and a short talk on the specific aspects/advantages/challenges of the subject/location. I will be teaching fundamentals, values, design, color and brushwork. Individual guidance will be given based on each students individual painting experience. Students can expect to complete one or more paintings depending on experience. All skill levels are welcome. There will be a group discussion/critique session at the end of the day.  Registration is through the Lakes Region Art Association. Fee for a one day plein air workshop is $135. Please register soon.There are only a few openings left.  REGISTER HERE.

Evening and nocturne painting is wonderful...

Summer is in full swing. The full moon evenings of summer are a wonderful time to get out and paint.  If you haven't painted on a full moon or at night this is the time to grab the chance.   I am offering a special event... on the evening of the August full moon on Thursday, Aug 18th I will be teaching an evening/night time plein air class on the coast of Maine to a small group of painters. Registration is open now.
