We love Plein Air painting. There is something so special about being out in the fresh air, alone or with other artists, seeking out a new location or vista to set up your gear. Ignore the wind, or snow, or burning sunshine while adding one more color, one more paint stroke as you dive deep into your painting. Enjoy the autumn leaves and a bubbling brook, the salty beach air... All of this is the essence of Plein Air Painting... on location...feeling one with nature. Join us!
PALS has painted in the Stony Brook area many times, and the Duck pond on 25A is a favorite spot...but right there hiding from plain sight is Avalon Park. What an oasis of beauty. We only ventured across the wooden bridge and up the stone steps when we came upon a magical pond and little forest with dappled light shining through the trees. It is one of those places thats makes me wonder, "Where have I been, how have I missed visiting such a peaceful and special place?" PALS will definetly be back to paint some more!
