Show at the Good Tern Coop Cafe (and a colony of bees)

A selection of my paintings will hang at the Good Tern Coop Cafe from May 4th 2015 until May 31st.   I've been a weekly working member there, in produce, for over a year.  They are a wonderful group of people to work with and I'm grateful to be offered this opportunity.

I'll have a dozen or so paintings there.  My most recent work is at an intimate scale and primarily portrays my interest in the overlooked and undervalued within our environment: 'weeds', pollinator food plants; and bees, both native and honey bees. Some pieces might spark conversations about what a surprisingly big difference seemingly small changes can make in our own yards.  There will also be some 'winter flowers' such as roses (store-bought) and geraniums (blooming indoors), just what I found available and colorful in the frozen northern winter.




Last Saturday I brought home 15,000 new pets.  They seem to be settling in okay, despite the poor flying weather they have been able to bring home pollen a few days.

Aldermere Farm Annual Art Show





100s of pieces of artwork, hay bales, rustic barn, portable construction lighting, benefiting youth agriculture and education programs provided by this great, beautiful farm owned by Maine Coast Heritage Trust.  I'm very happy to have been a part of this for the 1st time and sold my submissions.

Every Wednesday I volunteer at the farm's visitor center for a few hours selling t-shirts, books, artwork, and humanely- and sustainably-raised beef!
