I returned this morning from the Castine Plein Air Festival, which was a great success. Forty artists participated, and most of them sold paintings. I sold four of the nine that I painted, and am thrilled. I neglected to take a photo of one of the sold paintings, a sunset from Wadsworth Cove. It was dark when I finished it, and I was painting by feel. I was surprised at how well it turned out when I got a look the next morning!

I especially enjoy meeting other artists at these events, particularly those whose work I know. I'd never met Phil Frey before, though I'd admired his work for years, and enjoyed painting with him. And I was so pleased when he won first prize.
