Penny McCrea, a plein Air Artist, lives on the Chester River just 1 mile upstream from Chestertown. She has a new studio that has plenty of light and a wonderful water view. From a distance, her art appears realistic but on closer examination, the paintings convey an impressionistic quality. Recently, Penny has been painting on Maryland’s Eastern Shore where she is particularly sensitive to the intrinsic beauty of farms, fields, big skies, tidewater marshes and saltwater streams.
