Third Time’s The Charm

A certain artist — painting en plein air — has graced “06880” twice before.

In 2013, alert reader Dawn Matera photographed him at work on the corner of Riverside Avenue and the Post Road.

Last week, Fred Cantor snapped him at Parker Harding Plaza.

But no one knew who he was.

Now we do.

Lynn U. Miller saw him a few days ago, and stopped to chat.

He’s Jim Chillington. He lives in Newtown, but loves Westport’s many scenic views.

His work is currently on exhibit (and for sale) at Rockwell Art and Framing on the Post Road — not far from the scenes he loves to paint.

    That is my cousin’s husband! He is an extremely talented artist, and some of his work is on display at Rockwell Framing on the Post Road in Westport. His landscapes and beach scenes are terrific, and his brushstrokes and technique make the scene come alive. Check it out for yourself!

    I met Jim at The Bridge at Saugatuck Shores December 2011 and wrote this blog about him.
