When Alan Mast, my neighbor, came over and asked if I would be interested in sharing his studio space at Fort Andross, it was an offer that just couldn't be refused. It has worked out pretty well. Alan takes the morning shift and I take the afternoon shift. Fort Andross provides most excellent light and it's less than two miles from the house. Click here for some shots of the Studio. As you can see from the shot of my workspace, I'm currently working on two paintings of the Portland Head Light at Cape Elizabeth - one with the sea gull flying by and one without. I couldn't decide whether to leave the sea gull in or take the sea gull out, so I'm painting both. We'll see how that works.

May 24 was the sixth birthday of my god-niece. She got her first easel for a present. Definitely a step-up, she has been working in water colors on her toy table for more than a year now. I think she would like your new loft, hopefully too young to be jealous. She is an experienced web browser, so I will get her the links to your blog/portfolios. Artists should stick together, wouldn't want her to get discouraged among the Big Birds and Muppets.

I'd be interested in seeing your god-niece's "work." Whenever they hang the best-of student arts at the Portland Museum, it always has its surprises.
