I am shocked that I only have one more week here in Portsmouth, New Hampshire. Though I don't feel that the summer has gone by too quickly, the month of June was mostly pretty much lost to be painting-wise, because of the uncharacteristic rainy cloudy weather every day. So I didn't feel that the summer truly started until mid-July, when we started to get normal summer weather again. Since the weather became beautiful, I have been painting a lot, using my new french easel. I have been in Kittery, Maine quite a bit, painting with the Kittery Art Association and with the New Hampshire Plein Air Group. This weekend I painted en plein air at the Wentworth Coolidge Historic Site in Portsmouth, sponsored by the McGowan Fine Art Gallery.
