Harkness Memorial State Park

Harkness Park will be our next paint out scheduled for Sunday, July 15, beginning at 9:00.

Many of you have painted this location that offers an Italian mansion, formal gardens with statuary, columns, and a wonderful view of the sound. However, new pictures on their website indicate that the property and gardens have been updated, and there are many more gardens than the last time I painted this beautiful estate. A walk around the property reveals an unlimited painting resource, there is something for everyone here.

This is also new: the website said that parking fees are not charged to cars with CT plates.

For those interested: Harkness volunteer docents lead guided tours on weekends. The first tour starts at 10:00 am and the last starts promptly at 1:30 pm. Donations for tours are welcome and most appreciated.
