As summers go, this has been a good one. I've finally moved into my camp in Rangeley and am starting to feel settled in. My goal was to create a home and a painting studio with plenty of light and some extra storage space that would make the comings and goings to the art & craft shows a little easier. Its starting to come together and it feels good!
The Summer Shows
Its been crazy trying to get the house and studio finished and do summer shows all over New England. Everything is just a lot further away when you start out this far up in Maine! And one of my biggest concerns has been whether I will hit a moose on the drive back to Rangeley!
Common Ground Fair, Unity Maine
The Common Ground Fair in Unity, Maine was certainly one of the highlights of the summer shows. There is so much to learn about living a more organic and natural lifestyle and the Common Ground Fair helps to keep you informed and up to date. The show was also a feast for the eyes and the spirit and made me feel right at home. I'm hoping to go back again next summer....and bring more Sunflower Trivets!
I finally got the garden in, sang in the community chorus, had a chance to do a little reading by the lake, do some fishing, play golf, photograph a moose across the street from the camp and spend some good quality time with family and friends.
All in all its been a good summer.
Its time now to take the plants off the wood stove, stoke the fire and get to work! And now that the studio is ready I hope to get back to a growing list of paintings for the winter market in Florida and the spring in Maine. I plan to be working on coconut palms, herons, tropical fish, & loons. Can't wait to get started. Dj
