  • Dockside- Boothbay Harbor
    Monday, August 20, 2018 - 4:30pm

    Boothbay Harbor is a busy place in the summer. There were lots of boats in the harbor. The comings and goings were fun to watch, and it was fun to paint all the "stuff" on the dock. Plein air painting affords such a wealth of experiences!

    As an author, I’m inspired to make miniature dresses out of altered books, particularly my favorite novels.  This is my new Flapper Series, with F. Scott Fitzgerald short stories and novels.

    They are made from an unmarred page in a heavily marked up copy of The Great Gatsby, which I saved from the thrift bin. It is a beautiful book and deserves a beautiful tribute.

    Each comes with its own custom tiny hanger—and are all one of a kind.

Returning to the Camden Opera House by popular demand! In this increasingly virtual world of ours, what makes music authentic? For some, songs are no more than tiny sentimental decompressions. But others treat music as an extension of their roots, a mirror of their travels and relationships, and a testament to both their craft and passion.

Even though it was overcast the light was just beaming on the little house on Ram Island and on the homes in the cove. The inner cove was still a little dark. It was magic. You see so much when you are plein air painting........and there is so much to see!!!

    “We need the tonic of wildness...At the same time that we are earnest to explore and learn all things, we require that all things be mysterious and unexplorable, that land and sea be indefinitely wild, unsurveyed and unfathomed by us because unfathomable. We can never have enough of nature.”

    Is St. Patrick’s Day the “Holy Day” for you or an Irish friend? I made this wee fairy dress in the midst of a nor'easter. While it was a whiteout outside for nearly 18 hours, piling up over a foot, I wanted to bring the beauty of Ireland's lush green landscape into this dress with dark green reindeer moss over a birch bodice.

    The back of the bodice is stitched up by bright green thread. This miniature fairy dress measures 1.5" by 4 " and comes with its own wee custom hanger.

    She is a love fairy and carries the red rose with her at all times. But love can cut both ways as anyone who has ever experienced heartbreak knows. The Leanhaun sidhe is a Gaelic muse, a solitary fairy, who seeks men to love, and live off of, for the more they are in her power, the more they waste away. The last gift they give her is their writing and poetry. She is immortal and death does not destroy her power. She is ever seeking for the next man to inspire and claim.

    This wee Irish fairy is called Sinann, based on legend of the origins of The River Shannon, a river filled by the Otherworld. It was named after a young lady called Sinann, who happened to be the grand-daughter of Lir, god of the sea. She decided to visit Connla’s Well and ate the fruits of the Tree of Knowledge, although she knew it was forbidden. As a result, the waters of the well rose up, carrying her out to sea and drowning her there. So the River Shannon was formed.
