The days are getting shorter, the locusts sing their songs, and the back to school sales are upon us, reminding us to enjoy each remaining minute of the summer season. It is not too late to paint (or eat, or both!) summer's treasures. I’m still gathering in the special things about summer- I’ve decided that for me summer isn’t over until the end of September. Did you know that August is peach season ? That apple picking begins in August? There are fall raspberries, and the grapes are ripening. Local spots to savor some of these include Lost Acres Farm in Granby, CT, Bushy Hill Farm in Granby, Kuras Farm in Suffield, the 4H Farm in Bloomfield, the Appleberry Farm in West Suffield or the Sweet Wind Farm in East Hartland. Farmer’s markets will have these and much more, many markets end in mid- late September, so don’t wait.
For the artist, the changing light provides fresh inspiration for painting whether en plein air, or shooting photos to be savored in the studio all winter. Fall is when the vineyards are harvesting, but who really needs a reason to visit a vineyard.. try these local vintners: Lost Acres Vineyard in Granby, CT; Rosedale Farms and Vineyards, and the newly opened Brignole Vineyard in East Granby.
