Harford Plein Air 2022 Begins – Painting in Havre de Grace, Maryland

Painting a boat in dry dock in Havre de Grace, MD

In June, I was juried into the 2022 Harford Plein Air Festival. This event lasts 2 months; artists can begin painting at the beginning of July until mid-September. We are required to create 5 plein air paintings of Harford County, MD. Since I live more than 50 miles away, I’m allowed to create 2 of those 5 paintings around where I live. I spent 3 nights/4 days painting in the Havre de Grace area and have produced 5 paintings. I’d like to go back and paint more depending on my schedule for the next couple of months. I’ll report back once we get closer to the exhibition date which occurs in mid-September.

Two years of the Covid pandemic has left us feeling like we are living through an endless winter where our eyes are tired of the long nights and empty trees. Cut off from each other and fearful, it is as if we have lost the colors of life. The intention of this exhibition is to bring back the hope and excitement, that this dark period is almost over, and soon we’ll be surrounded by the magnificent colors of art and life again.
