Message from Shauna Shane, our Paint out Chair: "Dear Members, Our paint out will be upcoming Sunday, May 7, 2017, at 9:30 am will be at WICKHAM PARK 1329 Middle Turnpike W., Manchester CT 06040 This is a beautiful private park, not supported by any town or state funding. With over 25 acres containing 10 different theme gardens, this park offers our painters an amazing opportunity. For instance, the English Garden contains three "garden rooms," designed to have flowers in bloom all season long. It is truly beautiful; spring is generous at Wickham Park. There are many columns, arches, ponds, and even peacocks! We can paint in any of the gardens or on the hilltop overlooking Hartford. Note: Wickham Park opens at 9:30 AM, with a fee of $7.00 per vehicle. We can arrive at 9:00 and sign in in the first parking area. Shauna Shane"

It was amazingly beautiful spring day, with abundance of sun, light breeze, bird singing and blooming trees. some sort of spring flies were little annoying, but they were not biting.
Thank you Mother Nature and CPAPS artists. Special thanks to Shauna Shane, paint-out host and chair, for use of her studio as a base of this paint out.
