Colin Page Art Weekend, Camden, Maine

I traveled to hear Colin Page do an art talk at the Public Library in Camden on Saturday.  It was a very well attended event and his talk gave me a couple of insights into my work that I'm going to try which require a more limited palette and smaller range of values.  I found a very nice hotel for only $55 with a high view to the sea and a "must try" eatery in Rockland  Most places are closed for the season or gone as far as art and galleries are concerned.  I enjoyed the paintings at the James Fitzgerald show at the Farnsworth and bought a biography of W.C.Wyeth (one of my favorite artists/illustrators) in the gift shop.  I discovered a new (to me) part of Rockport and the marvelous CMCA (Contemporary Art Museum).  Unfortunately it was closed for renovations but I'll definately see it in June when I return to take a workshop with Colin.  I walked all over Rockland Sunday morning and took pictures until my card was full.
