I’ll have cards and small prints available for sale at the Deer Isle Artists Association Holiday Pop-Up Market on Saturday, Dec. 2, 2017 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
All cards will be 5″ by 7″ and prints will be in 8″ by 10″ mats. Cards are $5 each, while prints will be $18. Proceeds benefit the Deer Isle Artists Association.
The blue Christmas tree above was actually right next to DIAA last year. Wonder if it will be back.
This is Brownie, who was actually pondering an Angry Bird cat toy. I turned it into a Christmas ornament. And I turned Brownie from naughty into nice.
Cynthia’s Barn actually started out as an Instagram post last winter. I am not a plein air snob and often use photos for inspiration.
I’ve actually painted this image several times. I could do a whole series on Deer Isle boats up on the hard. But I should probably call this “On the Cold and White Stuff.”
We sent this out as our Christmas card last year. It’s an image of a skater I made up from a bunch of photos I took on my lunch hour at the skating rink in front of the National Archives in Washington, D.C. a couple of years ago. I was probably having a bad day at work. So many of them were.
Winter Sunset is an image of Stonington Harbor from Hagen Dock. I can walk there from my house. I figure I’m pretty lucky to live here.
So come visit the DIAA gallery on Saturday. There will also be work by Peter Beerits, Rory Beerits, Cynthia Bourque Simonds, Dorothy Doubleday, Mary Eaton, Judith Felch, Susan Finsen, Cathy Hart, Jill Kofton, Diane Maguire Horton, David McBeth, Kaitlyn Metcalf, Carolyn Raedle, Scott Thurston, Maura Tilloston, Francoise Gervais, Gertrude Tarr, Oscar Turner, Linda Wells and Pat White.
We’ll also have holiday treats available, and Candy Eaton is opening the Periwinkle that day right across the street.
