A very happy holiday to you and yours and may the new year bring you a boatful of blessings. "December Dock", which I chose for this year's holiday card, was part of the dinghy series I painted earlier this year. Many of the local lobstermen here in Maine continue to ply their trade in the coldest months, leaving their boats in the water regardless of snow and ice.
This past summer, 4 chipmunks tunneled a hole outside my mother's bedroom window, and kept her entertained as they emerged each morning. I gave her this painting of that "Quartet" for Christmas. A mom and 3 babies, do you think?
Early in December I went out to the mud flats with Georgetown clammer Chad Campbell to get material for a new series of clammer paintings. We were out there at sunrise (6:30 a.m.) on a very cold and windy but sunny day, and I got wonderful resource material. The new work will be ready for next summer's Yarmouth clam festival. Shown below is my early start on the first painting. Five others are in process.
The Old Post Office Gallery in Georgetown, Maine, is now closed for the season and will not reopen, although one or two artists may continue to work in the space. After 10 successful years in the gallery, the five partners have decided to spend their time on other priorities. Inquiries about the work of the five artists (Cory Hart, Marijke Damrell, Judy Conlan, Denise Rankin and myself) who have shown there may be sent to me for forwarding.
I continue to show my work at two other galleries: the Elizabeth Moss Gallery in Falmouth, Maine, and the Centre St. Arts Gallery in Bath, Maine. Both are open year-round. More information can be found on their web sites: www.elizabethmossgalleries.com and www.centrestartsgalleryllc.com
