Dear CPS members,
It's that wonderful time of year again when we throw off our winter coats and enjoy the pleasure of painting outdoors en plein air. Currently, CPS joins forces with the Connecticut Plein Air Painting Society (CPAPS), which organizes Paint-outs (plein air sessions) at various locations.
Please see their website, www.cpaps.org for the current schedule of events.
August 24, 2013
There is one special event to which CPS members are especially invited, on August 24th (raindate August 25th) at Cindy Mazzaferro’s Lake house (on Bantam Lake) for a Connecticut Pastel Society (CPS) plein air paint out. The House is located at 35 Palmer Road Morris, CT. (203-494-1676 (cell) or 860-567-6299 (lake house number - call only if needed on Aug 24). There will be other homes on Deer Island that have opened their homes to paint from as well.
Cindy and her husband have offered to provide hamburgers and hotdogs for lunch. Please bring a dish (side dish/dessert) to share. We invite you to enjoy swimming, fishing, kayaking, and boating, bocce during the hottest part of the day only to be inspired to return to paint for the remaining hours of the day. Last year at a plein air paint out four paintings were sold. Feel free to arrive from 8:30 to dusk. The day should be filled with camaraderie, inspiration, and good times.
Please email Cindy at CindyMazzaferro@gmail.com by August 22 to indicate your attendance. Directions if necessary will be emailed to you.
Hope to see you there.
Enjoy the outings!
