This summer I was lucky enough to spend a 6 weeks (in two week chunks scattered throughout the season) working at Goodspeed in East Haddam, CT. The weather was beautiful when I was visiting in August, perfect for sketching outside! The company housing I was kept in while there was conveniently a thirty second walk from a bench with perfect views of both the opera house and the adorable restaurant next door. I also enjoyed talking to passers-by, of which there were many thanks to the shows happening at the theatre! One group who had been eating at the restaurant even ventured across the street just to see my sketch; they had been watching me paint while eating dinner on the porch!
