We will be painting in this beautiful park located in Putnam next Sunday, August 26. Surrounded by forrest, the Mashamoquet Brook snakes through the park, with views from both sides facilitated by a walking bridge. With abundant hiking trails, there is also a small swimming pond filled with children and their reflections in the water.
Mashamoquet park is located just past Rte. 97, a truly scenic road connecting Brooklyn to Woodstock. Anyone traveling south from Rte 44 will find We-Like-it Ice Cream, some say the best ever.

I’m so happy to discover this location again, after completing a winter painting here a few seasons ago. If you like painting water, running fast and slow, with rocks and rapids juxtaposed with a quiet pond with children on the shore, this is your site!

I hope to see you there!
