Plein Air Festivals

 "Ebb Tide in the Marsh"
5"x7" oil on linen panel

It's Plein Air Festival time! This afternoon was the beginning of the Ocean Park Plein Air Festival, which I'll be participating in through Friday. There are 9 artists, and today we got a tour of the village and met some of the residents. Ocean Park is a quintessential seaside town to the south of Old Orchard Beach, with beautiful cottages, a sandy beach, a marsh, and a few shops downtown. I'm told there's an old fashioned soda fountain, which I will definitely check out. The exhibit and sale is from 5-7 on Friday, at the Temple, 50 Temple Ave, Ocean Park, ME. I'd love to see you there.

I did the painting above yesterday morning in Kennebunk, once again in the Rachel Carson preserve. It's a lot more crowded in July than it was in May! It's fishing and beach time as well as plein air time in Maine.
