Day in the shade

On Saturday August 15th, 7 members of the Vermont Watercolor Society met at the Burlington Waterfront for a day of painting beautiful Lake Champlain for the Quadricentennial. The paintings created and any inspired by the vistas will be auctioned off as a fundraiser to benefit the society, Dragonheart Vermont (a breast cancer charity) and the artists. We painted for several hours in the morning and gathered around for lunch chatting about various art related topics. Visitors were plentiful and we handed out cards with this new blog address to interested individuals. Participants were: Kathy Berry Bergeron, Annelein Beukenkamp, Caren D. Calafati, Karen Casper, Larry Coffin, Diana D. Dunn and Donna Koutrakos. The day was perfect, as was the weather and we had a wonderfully shady spot overlooking all the happenings by the Burlington Boathouse. We would like to extend an invitation to all members to put a lake/pond/body of water inspired painting in the upcoming fundraiser auction. We will place the images on this blog with a link to an auction site for interested patrons to place their bids. We are gearing this auction to take place around the holidays.
Please check back for more information and to see the work soon!
