Artists-by-the-Sea, St. Andrews NB

Such an amazing day.  The weather completely cooperated!   We painting until we risked dehydration... hot as heck really.  The three of us broke down and actually wore hats.  i had my Sunbrella up and completely tucked myself under the shade!   Still stinking how, but we shan't complain - at least not out loud.  Once the tide came in the temperature dropped about 4 degrees celsius - made a big difference.  Did you know the deer flys (dog flies? moose flies) grow ginormous in St. Andrews and are particularly fond of artists?

We each completed four paintings! Once we were done ...we were done.  Back at it tomorrow.

Artists-By-the-Sea is an annual event raising funds for Hospice of Charlotte County.  The event for 2013 took place on July 13 & 14th.

Could Clear up - Could Rain
The annual fundraiser for Hospice Charlotte County takes place this coming weekend.  
In addition to offering the Plein Air paintings that artists complete around St Andrews during the event, the organizers have requested that artists bring along some small works with them – to kick start the silent auction process.   I have been very busy this holiday long weekend getting ready.

Painting in St Andrew's this weekend - Artists-by-the-Sea, July 10th & 11th

So this delicious fella was the guest of honour at our Farther's Day Dinner earlier this year.  We cooked up quite a batch - and I photographed every stage.  I see the next series of paintings to follow.  I said red - gotta see see some other colour than lilac for a few days!  Artist's by the Sea have asked us to bring with us a few small pieces to get the auction started while we are all out painting in the community.  So, this is one of my small pieces to get tthe day started.
