​The first Plein Air session held in 2014 was at the Ship Bottom boat ramp on June 12. Weather was a big factor, as it looked like rain, and much of the morning was foggy. Attendees included Diane Mayer, Ray Haworth, Deborah Heinz-Ominsky and yours truly (I showed up at the halfway mark). Ray left before I could get to see his effort, and Deborah wasn't too happy with her results. Diane finished her piece, but left before I could snap a photo, so you're stuck with my doodle....a very new medium for me....pen, ink and watercolor (see below)! Sketch is of Cedar Bonnet Island. Hopefully the weather will be better next time! Also seen in these photos is member Tom Troyano with his dog Rosie, who stopped by to see how the painting was going....he's seen here chatting with Diane Mayer.

Plein Air Master McKinley Awes Pine Shores Artists --Both as a Speaker and a Painter
Richard McKinley's program for PSAA members June 17 drew a crowd of 45 and all attendees went home awed by Richard's amazing talent to paint gorgeous, sensitive landscapes using watercolor (and sometimes oil paint washes) underpaintings with pastel! He has a wonderful rapport with students and audiences with his easy-going character and witty humor. His workshop students had spent all day in the heat on June 16 at Barnegat Light doing plein air, and they had more sessions scheduled for later this week. To see the artists on location, go to Plein Air Group page or click here. Our thanks to Linda Coulter and Elizabeth Ventura for coordinating the program.

What in the World is Zentangling?
When Webmeister Mike was a lad, we used to call it "doodling." But, no, according to my Google research--and as Mary Walker-Baptiste instructed her summer children's art class (below)--zentangling is the improvisational yet tightly focused art of creating beautiful images from repetitive patterns, using black ink on white paper. One source calls it "a relaxing form of advanced doodling." See? I was right!
This lucky couple (above) picked a painting by Ramon Valentin-Avila. Other art patrons got to pose with their artists, including (below) Carol Freas, Willy Mueller, Joan Dandeo, Marilyn Flagler, Paul Daukas, and Pat Morgan (whose patrons were the Baulderstones, Glenys and Ken).
Oh, and did we mention the great food?.....
Among the Pine Shores members who showed up in style: gallery director Tom Rutledge (in celeb shades) and wife Barbara; emcee Paul Hartelius (who took most of the photos on this page) with his young assistant Kevin (that shot was snapped by Paul's wife, Diane); Chris Vohden and Irene Bausmith, who helped with the food and decorations; and Linda Saladino, who,with Mary Walker-Baptiste, greeted visitors at the door.
