That was the week that was

Yes, there we were, together again! The Grizzly Badgers! We came, we saw, we ate turkey, played games, and managed some good conversations. A wonderful family Christmas, three generations enjoying each other's company. And the turkey was pretty good, if I do say so myself.
Now it's back to our separate realities, but we move forward with good memories and the anticipation of more to come in the future.

Red Queen

I have two prints at the Beaumont Art League's National, "Red Queen" and "Portrait of Jennie T."
Wish I could be there, but I think some family will be able to represent me. "Red Queen" won the BAL's Purchase Prize and will become part of their permanent collection.

In other news, we received yet another foot of snow, the driveway is becoming narrower by the minute, and we are SO ready for Spring. Another month to go...

Exhibition of the Great Cranberry Island Portrait Project

The art looks very handsome in the Blum Gallery at the College of the Atlantic. Our Gallery Talk and Reception will be January 28th. The stories that go with the art (written by Rebecca Buyers-Basso from her interviews with the islanders) are on the 12 chairs in the center. On the other wall are large posters of documentary photos.

Going Nuclear

We enjoyed getting together for the Christmas holidays. Just ordinary times made special by the five of us being together. Tom made some of his wonderful Indian meals and I managed a nice Christmas Eve Pasta y Fagioli thanks to a recipe shared by friend Patti. We did order pizza more than once!

I have embraced the Bread Machine. We'll never Be Hungry Again!

Ferry back to Reality

Becky and I had a great weekend on the Island. the exhibition was well attended; it was the final week of the season, and the chill of fall was in the air. The prints looked well in their white mats, and the stories were on tables in booklets; the room became like a library; once people had looked at the prints and read the biographical info on the tags, they became absorbed in the stories behind the faces. All "our" Islanders came to see it, and left with their own print portrait. Becky and I will now endeavor to get the Exhibition shown in venues around the state, and Beyond!
