Plein Air Wooley Pond

Wooley Pond is a beloved spot.
The air was still as we began, reflections on the water inspired. As the day wore on the wind came up and the umbrellas came down. Luckily we had some shade nearby.
I hadn't painted boats for a while.  White highlights straight from the tube didn't look right. I mixed in small amounts of cadmium yellow light and that helped. I still need to play around with it. Deciding on color combinations improve with practice. More painting and practicing. All the while enjoying the pretty day.

Afterwards we went into Southampton for dinner at Red Bar. On the way, a brief shower and double rainbow. 
A perfect day.

Child's Play in Bridgehampton

The Thirty Squared group show recently opened at the Children's Museum of the East End. I had never been to CMEE, so didn't know what to expect. The museum is amazing! I am honored to have my Rainbow Beach painting hanging in this astonishing space along with the work of east end artists who I admire. Thanks to Kimberly Goff of Elaine Benson Gallery for curating and coordinating a wonderful show. Thanks to Steve Long the Museum Director, Paul Johnson for publicity and the lovely staff at the Children's Museum for being our gracious hosts.

Cinema Update

The Sag Harbor Cinema was severely damaged by fire in December of 2016We were all heart broken, fearing we had lost the iconic heart of our village forever. After months of negotiation, the Sag Harbor Partnership, has contracted to buy the Cinema site.
We have amazing PLANS but there is a July 1st contract DEADLINE. The video below states our plea. The Sag Harbor Cinema Arts Center site has more information. If you can, please CONTRIBUTE. Thank you! It will take all of us to get this done.
