Getting ready for evening and nocturne painting…
Summer is in full swing. My flower gardens are in full bloom. The long lazy days of summer are here. But I don’t feel lazy and I do feel like summer is moving by at a steady clip. The days are shortening a bit. But only by a few minutes. I am looking forward to the full moon evenings of summer. I am aware that I have just 3 full moons left in warm weather. And I’m hoping the next full moons are on relatively clear evenings. So far every summer I’ve been lucky. Its been gorgeous! During the evening of the August full moon on Thursday, Aug 18th I will be teaching an evening/night time plein air class on the coast of Maine to a small group of painters. Registration is open now. Details are below.
