Continuing the Legacy - Join us for a Painting Day at Lilac Hill

by Margie and Martha Boynton

We had an outstanding turn out for the Lee Boynton: The Light of Life exhibition — over 140 people signed our guess book! We had a lot of wonderful feedback from the show. Many people asked if we could do another exhibition.  Several former students expressed how much Dad’s classes influenced their lives and spoke about getting together to paint. 

In response to this, we will be holding a painting day on November 19 from 10:00am - 2:00pm at Lilac Hill, our family property on Weems Creek. During this events, Margie Boynton will provide exercises and instruction in the basics of identifying values and applying color through blocks studies or painting simple still life arrangements.  Her instruction will be based on her father’s teaching materials. More advanced students would be encouraged to paint the landscape on their own. Bring a bag lunch and a snack to share. Beverages and homemade cookies will be provided.


Date: Saturday, November 19th, 10am - 2pm

Where: 3 Weems Creek Drive, Annapolis, MD 21401(Park in the grass to the left of the driveway, marked with a sign)

RSVP: Please email Margie Boynton by November 16th if you are interested in attending this event.

fee: $25 per person 

Enrollment limited to 12

Beyond the Light of Life Exhibition:

As a family of artists, we have been developing our vision for continuing the Lee Boynton Legacy.  We will be posting information about future shows and events on the website (, and adding points of interest as they come along. 


 We would like to see the blogging element on the website become a vehicle through which we can encourage creative people to unlock and develop their artistic potential.  We hope to create a safe place where former students or other emerging artists, poets and writers can exhibit their work and tell their stories. Lee was all about that, and we’d like to keep that light he carried alive and burning brightly.

Margie has been collecting some of her Dad’s teaching materials, block demos and color lessons. She would like to create a study guide for artists using this material as well as adding some material of her own. 

We welcome any suggestions or ideas readers might like to share.
