    "Two Trees at Ocean Point" oil 9" x 12”
    The big November snow storm was a storm to remember for sure. One of the memories it left was its changing of "Three Trees" to "Two Trees" Our icon has changed but we will still enjoy painting the new look. Artists are undaunted!

    This hot rock band harnesses handsome harmonies and nimble, sturdy acoustic folk. 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.

    Morning Light on the Cove 11" x 14" Oil on oil-primed linen mounted on board. I painted this about 7:30 in the morning in mid April. 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!!!

    By John Galsworthy
    Starry-eyed is April morn,
    Rain bells glitter on the thorn.
    Birds are tuning down the lane
    Patter song of fallen rain.
    Spring can grieve, but Spring can be
    Very life of minstrelsy!

    “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.

    In winter, the ‘Wee Folk,’ Irish fairies, retreat underground. This is the Reindeer Muse, the Queen's own poet. Every day, she alights to a sunny spot to collect the sun and her thoughts for a new verse she'll take back to the Queen and court for the evening. This one-of-a-kind miniature fairy dress is made from dried grass, birch bark and reindeer moss adorned with an applique of birch and dried Hydrangea.

    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.

This postage stamp view surrounded by mountains, most notably, Maiden Cliff, as it rises dramatically across the lake, comes from the imagination of local Mainer Justin Stephens, a self-taught artist. All of his life he has climbed these mountains, swum this lake and spent many a summer day right here at this very spot in the Fernald's Neck Preserve.
