Planning Meeting 2024

The NFPAP artists will meet at the WNY Visitor Center in Grand Island at 10:30 Wednesday March 6 to plan the year's paint events. Choose days and locations that are convenient and enter them into the calendar. Additional paint days will be scheduled as they become available throughout the year. It's time to think about new places, city or country, park or waterway to get the season going!

Spring May Show Up!

When the sun shines and grass shows through the snow we start to think about plein air 2024, new places to explore and capture with the art supplies of the day. our planning meeting is tentatively planned at the WNY visitor center in Grand Island NY on March 6, 10:30. Bring ideas for new paintouts and places to meet. Photo from one of our end of year picnics and timed painting events at Beaver Island State Park.

A private homestead visit.

A gentleman friend has a hidden home and farm off Lower Mountain Road in Lewiston. He invited us to paint there. 

Ann Zoher used watercolors and painted facing the south, where the barn is.

Audrey captured the victorian home.

A vine covered barn-it used to be red.

Picnic time, 2023

Our annual picnic returned to Beaver Island State this year but we didn't have as many bees as last year.

Small certificates were given to every painter, noting each painters special skills.

We have become longtime friends by painting through the seasons. Such luck to have mutual interests in nature, paint and friendship.
