of the MLG, taken last Friday. We were getting together to plan our annual group painting trip to Maine. Many of the MLG members go to Maine at various other times, but we are trying to keep up the tradition of a yearly group visit, as well. So far so good!

The MLG turned out in almost full force (minus Mary Walsh, who had a previous commitment) at my opening last Thursday. Thanks to them, and all the other friends, fellow artists, and others who came in to see the work, there was a great turnout. I also want to thank gallery owner/director Larry DiCarlo and the gallery staff who created a festive atmosphere. It is a wonderful space and the work was hung beautifully.
I'm posting some photos which, I think, speak more eloquently than words.

This is another of my plein air pieces from September's stay on Monhegan Island. While there we got lashed with the tail end of Hurricane Hannah. After one gray stormy day the weather started clearing towards sundown. There was an eerie, exhausted calm: dark sky, rosy sunset and the water of the harbor looked like glass. I painted as quickly as I could before the light went.
