My art group recently had a day of painting at a beautiful old farm near Frenchtown, New Jersey, courtesy of one of our members whose family's place it is (the talented and generous and well-known poet Cathy Cohen!) While I was perched pondside trying to paint a dinghy moored to a post, two art group members climbed into it and rowed merrily away! Their high spirits were contagious. Renee Daily (in the hat) just had an article written about her stunning murals, and the oarswoman, Alice Dustin, is also enjoying a spate of fame, for her work not as a painter but as an aerialist! I thought it was fitting that these two were the ones in the boat, and it gives me an opportunity to link to their recent press. Congratulations everyone! What a fun day.
