Bayport Water View & Lighthouse Art Show

We had a fairly overcast day with showers threatening so I headed down by the water in Bayport.  There was a nice gazebo nearby just in case it started to rain....but I lucked out.

Last Thursday evening was the Fire Island Lighthouse Annual Art Show reception. I had 2 pieces accepted into the show. It is always a fun show to do and the reception is always lovely with snacks and wine. If you are lucky and have a nice sunset it only adds to make the night more special. Unfortunately rain was threatening but several of us went outside and like high school kids did some fun photos. Several of my friends also had work in the show and we always enjoy looking at the work we all did. Everything in the show has a marine theme.

Here are a few photos we took outside.
Me and my friend, Joan...yes, another Joan.

Here I am with one of my paintings from the show. I was just informed today that this painting (the one on the top) sold. Yay!!!

Here is a better view of both of my paintings.


  1. Congrats on your show and your SALE, Joan! Awesome paintings!

  2. Oh each painting is just beautiful, Joan! That top piece is so an image I have in my head of New England coastal areas. Just lovely! Congratulations on the sale too!

  3. Congratulations Joan, I love both paintings! How difficult to choose just one! I love the photos from the event and the sketch!

  4. Thanks Tina, Sherry, and Celia!!!
