"Road trip to North Shore Arts Association" pen & ink & watercolor 6 x 9

The very generous and hospitable North Shore Arts Association    invited the artists from the South Shore of Boston to visit them this week.  Thirty-two of us rented a bus and took a road trip up to Gloucester to paint on Rocky Neck.  We had a wonderful time.  The event was well-organized, the bus ride was great fun, and we painted between rain showers and downpours; then met back at NSAA for a reception and a chance to view everyone's work.  
I'll post my oil painting later, but had a chance to do some sketching back on the NSAA grounds.  Here's the beautiful Association galleries with our bus out front.  What a great day.

July 11th update:  Nice to see my image on the NSAA blog today.

Thanks for looking.
