Warren Quahog and Art Festival

TitlelessArtEvery year in July I visit the Warren Quahog  and Art Festival in.  Not only is filled with artists(!) but I love that warm little-town feel when I’m strolling around…

This year I purchased an oil painting on Masonite.  SO EXCITED!  Actually the artist; Dolores Gaynor, has had no formal training, no web site and no title on the painting I purchased!   When you chat with her it’s as if we’ve know each other for years.  She was so kind, sweet and very proud of her (and totally should be…) pieces and says she gathers subject matters through needlepoint and magazine ideas.

My title-less piece.





Other artists I chatted with:


Stephanie Stroud

Amazing mix of media.  Handmade paper, paint and very well thought-out composition.  Stephanie won Second place in this year’s Art Exhibit.

James William Flynn

His pen and ink drawings drew me into his tent.  There were so many to look at and the local subjects were a friendly reminder how wonderful it is to live in New England.  Visit the web site and read his blog, very interesting man…










Bruce Lippincott

Not a big nature photo fan, but I must say, Bruce’s photography had me sold.  Many of his photos were of foggy scenes from New England to Canada.  I just stopped and stared.  Nature is an amazing force and when someone like Bruce can capture and remind us all how powerful it can be, take the time to stop and stare.
