The captain and I are home in Maine after four months on the island in north Florida. Even though there's a little snow this morning, the temp on the island in Florida was only 45 degrees, so we were glad we are home early. I love having my things about me and being a 10th generation Mainer, there is no place like home.

Opening The Barn with lots of local artists showing for Season 4 on May 30. Also having shows at The Ledges at Sebasco Harbor Resort with guests artist shows every two weeks throughout the summer. Still a few spaces left, but almost full so contact me right away if you are an artist and want to have a two week show. If you want to work out commission rather than rent, we can do that, too. Here's the call to artists video.

This year is the 200th anniversary of the incorporation of the Town of Phippsburg and there are lots of activities being planned for the season. A wonderful map is in the works with details of all the events and local things to see and do. I am hoping for  wonderful season with lots and lots of new and repeat visitors to our beautiful fishing villages near the sea.

Created lots and lots of new art over the winter and have it all strewn about the house. Also working on Maine seaglass magnets, roses, flowers, sculptures, and more to add to items offered at The Barn.

Well, lots to do and there are fishermen here catching us up on what's been happening since we've been gone so I'm getting another coffee and listening to some stories. Hope you all have a wonderfully sweet, safe, productive day and that your healthy and happy. Thanks for following the journey. More later.

Plan Your Maine Vacation Now!

Monday March 10, 2014

Never too early to plan your Coast of Maine vacation and there is no better year than this one to visit Phippsburg! This is the 200th anniversary of the incorporation of the Town of Phippsburg and her history is rich and lengthy. Beginning even before the 1607 Popham Colony Site on the banks of the Kennebec River and reaching right up through this celebrations this summer we are always pleased to welcome new visitors and welcome home those who visit us each summer. For more information on Phippsburg (really the BEST place to visit on the Maine Coast!) please visit my informative website

The captain, the three cats, and I are still in Florida and it is finally thawing out down here. I swear this has been one heck of a cold winter, even here! Not complaining, mind you, I know it's been much, much worse in Maine but we may not be quite far enough south to suit me ;) My type of perfect weather is Costa Rica, hint, hint ;)

We've been having lots of fun lately exploring bayous, little rivers, and creeks and basically just running about in the boat. Looking forward to a good steak dinner down at The Freezer this Wednesday if we don't get rain. Been awhile since I'v e been on an official date so I am looking forwrad to it.

Working on two rather large paintings and a book right now (not writing it, but creating covers with acrylics and handmade paper). Today I am running errands onshore. Hoping it will warm up enough here to go swimming before we go back home to Maine!

Speaking of errands, better run. Thanks for following the journey. More later.
