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!

Splash Plein Air Poetry books
sold out!

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.

 "Palm Warblers and a Yellow Rumped for Jim,"

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.

The day ended on an amazing note with the book selling out and my painting finding a new home! Splash created such lovely ripples...
