It’s Farmer’s Market Season, have you been to one yet? Most of the local towns have them. In our area there are many: East Granby Farmer’s Market at the East Granby Library, as well as in Granby, Simsbury, Suffield, Windsor, Bloomfield, even the Old State House in Hartford- all have markets to visit. Summer season brings wonderful fresh vegetables and fruits, all locally grown.
Summer brings yummy things to eat, but for the artist it is a feast for the eyes and ideas as well. There is an amazing variety of colors and textures. It is a challenge to capture all that, but can you also evoke the aromas and flavors, the crispness, the juiciness, the anticipation of the that first taste? Once you have a vibrant painting, it is a simple step to reproduce it and make various size prints and cards to take to shows, workshops, and local venues. Make buying your art even easier for your customers
For the art lover, you can have this summer beauty all year long hanging on a wall in your house, support the arts and purchase a painting from a local artist. Keep an image of summer in your kitchen or dining room, even the porch, bathroom, mudroom, or wherever it makes you smile. Start a collection!
And how about “Pick your Own”? Get out in nature and pick your own summer treasure- go early before it’s too hot. Sample the goods and you’ll be hooked. Don’t forget to look around you and enjoy the beauty of the surroundings, we live in a beautiful area of hills and valleys, ponds and fields. My personal favorite is blueberries and raspberries at Kuras Farm in Suffield, CT. But don’t forget the Pickin’ Patch in Avon for a wide variety of items, or Lost Acres Farm in North Granby, CT for apples!
