Warm, sunny, gentle breeze, lots of very nice people milling around--a great day to be out painting and I had a very good day talking with lots of nice people. I painted a lake scene with the foreground of Eric John Goodridge's memorial bench. Terri (his mother) told me it was a gorgeous view and a very special place and she was right. The Farmers' Market was a bustling scene and about 30 artists participated in the Paint Out. I sold a painting of the park and I also bought one: Carol Potvin's view of the bandbox. There was a reception following at a boutique in town. Thanks to Pam Perras, I had the opportunity to get to know Wakefield a little better and will try to attend again next year.
A reminder that two business are showing my work until October 17th, Tootsie's Coffee and Ice Cream Shop and Parker Florist. Come to Tootsie's on Wednesday the 12th at 5 p.m. for Open House.

The Wakefield MA Paint Out will be held this weekend because a water main broke last week and the event had to be moved to the rain date. The merchants of Wakefield are working with some of the artists to show their work and have an ART WALK from the 1st to the 17th. The Paint Out is from 9 to noon, the display and sale from noon until 1 and then a reception as mentioned below.
ON SATURDAY at 1:30 AFTER THE PAINT OUT—
J'Adore, an upscale consignment boutique, at 13 Princess Street, is hosting a Paint Out reception. It should be a lot of fun. I hope all of you can attend. J'Adore is displaying watercolors by Phyllis Kaplan.
There are great opportunities for artists to get to know one another and to (hopefully!) meet art appreciators of Wakefield—at Ristorante Molise, Oct 13 ($8 and cash bar), and Greenwood Wine & Spirits, Oct 19 (free). Tootsie's Coffee Corner is having an Open House displaying the work of Mary Pyche, on October 12 at 5 p.m. If you come, I'll treat you to coffee or ice cream!
See you at the Paint Out on Saturday. The weather will be beautiful!
