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

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.

One of my favorite towns in NH is Jackson. This afternoon I made my first trip to the falls there. Beautiful! a bit slippery, I wiped out once, so did my poor pup.
I’ll be back..

the rest of the day

We took an early dinner in Jackson at the Eagle Mountain House. I love this place, it’s so incredibly beautiful and peaceful. The inn has a large porch shared by a patio restaurant and about 20 rocking chairs for just hanging out in. It was a perfect afternoon.

He was quite healthy and active. It was a treat! This was the second time we’ve seen a fox in this area; I believe it might be the same beautiful guy.

Proteus Falls…in the hood

20140720-195247-71567046.jpgTook a quick little trek into the woods today. One of the electricians who has been doing some work on the house told me about this spot. It was close to home and a big bang for the buck. The trail was .1 miles…and it was lovely the whole way.

Source to Sea Day Six on the Androscoggin River

I did two legs of the Androscoggin River Watershed Council’s Source to Sea event..so far. Hopefully I will get to do a few more days. These are pictures are from my second trek…from Shelburne NH to Gilead ME. It really was a beautiful day and a great stretch of the river.

The Androscoggin River used to be one of the most polluted rivers in the United States. Twenty years ago you could smell the river from a distance and children grew up being told to stay away from it’s shores. The Source to Sea event helps to highlight this river and the efforts taken to clean it up.

I highly recommend this event and spending time on this beautiful water.
