Dear <<First Name>>,

It’s almost July which means it’s officially summer! Bring on the flip flops, sand, and vacation.  We are in agreement with Henry James who said, “Summer afternoon – summer afternoon; to me those have always been the two most beautiful words in the English language.” Enjoy the lazy days of summer, and stay tuned for future Blossoms of Hope events.

Paint It! Ellicott City July 13 6-8 PM

Blossoms of Hope is presenting the ‘Best Depiction of Nature Award’ at this year’s Paint It! Ellicott City.  Artists from around the region will take to the streets of Historic Ellicott City beginning July 9 to participate in the plein air paint-out event, Paint It! Ellicott City.

En plein air, meaning “in the open air,” is the technique of painting outdoors, directly from life. Often, groups of plein air artists will gather within stated boundaries for a “paint-out.” The Howard County Arts Council, Howard County Tourism, and Howard County Public Schools are presenting the paint-out weekend that culminates in an exhibit at the Howard County Center for the Arts (HCCA).  For more information please visit
