|Old Frog Pond Farm|
On Sunday afternoon, September 11, 2016, Old Frog Pond Farm & Studio hosted the 4th season of Plein Air Poetry . It was the first time I attended the event. What an inspiring day surrounded by poets, friends & families in a beautiful setting with stunning sculptures placed throughout the land and on the water!

I am honored to have my painting Lily Pond grace the cover of this year's poetry book. Many thanks to Linda Hoffman artist, writer & orchardist, Susan Edwards Richmond, editor & poet, and Lynn Horsky, graphic designer, artist & poet.
Following the editor of Splash, Susan Edwards Richmond, and the poets we covered a lot of ground walking among the apple trees, by the meditation sanctuary and near the winding shore of the pond.

There are 19 poets in this year's edition. Each artist read their poem inspired by a certain spot on Old Frog Pond Farm. These magical spots are noted in the book. Hearing their words, in their voices, at the place of inspiration made such a powerful impact.

An added treat was seeing the sculpture exhibit featuring artwork by many New England sculptors. I have several favorites. There is still time to see this outdoor exhibit as its open weekends 11-5 PM through Columbus day on 10/10.
