One of the art organizations I belong to is the Connecticut Plein Air Painters Society. This group of dedicated "outdoor painters" will be having a show and sale of original plein air works at Hartford Fine Art and Framing, beginning October 10th through the holiday season. These three pieces will be my contribution to the show. The first, Lieutenant River Bridge was painted on the grounds of the historic Florence Griswold Museum of American Impressionism. Plein Air painters have been painting this view of the river for 100 years! The second piece is Stoney Creek, a section of Branford, CT and gateway to the Thimble Islands. These small islands that dot the Long Island Sound are said to be the burial place of Captian Cook's treasure. The third painting was painted at Hammonasssett State Park, one of the beautiful natural treasures of the Connecticut shoreline. There will be many special events at the Hartford Fine Art Gallery throughout the season and if you are in the neighborhood I encourage you to stop in and enjoy the art. Hartford Fine Art & Frame is located at 80 Pitkin St., East Hartford, CT. Visit their website at
