William McCarthy - Art in the Park

Art in the Park -- I love spending a beautiful spring afternoon looking at amazing art. Montclair Museum sponsors Art in the Park here in our lovely town of Montclair - and it never disappoints.

I came across some really wonderful artists.

William McCarthy, is a landscape artist who paints strictly from memory. He told me that all of his pieces are painted indoors. He sketches his pieces first in a little notepad. His sketches are probably no bigger than the size of a business card. When he's satisfied with the detail, the then paints amazing oils from his tiny sketches. His colors are gorgeous.
