That’s what you call a flock of peacocks/peahens..”a muster” or “an ostentation.”
Seems I’m painting up one such group!

We headed to the eastern Portland today for a few things, namely a camera for Chris and art supplies for me. On the drive home, we stopped off on a little island just north. I really do love the eastern shore. Heading home now..

Discovering my home town Gorham, New Hampshire

The start of Mt Surprise.

Gorham is small town, around 3000 people. It’s in northern New Hampshire on the Northern end of the White Mountains. There is so much to see here, so much to discover. Every day I wake up ready to explore my new home. Life is good now and I am awake and aware to all of the goodness.

Well I sold the turtle piece..yay..but now I need another large piece for the show. This is a small piece I’m working on. I think it would also make a really great big piece. I love this little guy already!

I’m going to be showing my art at the Gorham, NH Art Walk on August 12. While I’ve had my art up in cafés/galleries.. this is new for me. I’ll be physically present and will be engaged with those looking at my work and the other artists around me.
I usually hear feed back second hand or via an email. I’m a bit nervous, but it’s good for me and my work to step out of my comfort zone.
This piece will be up for the show.
