Boothbay Harbor

"Heading for Cover", Joe Godleski, Oil
Alex and I motored with our out-of-town company up to Boothbay Harbor yesterday. We stopped first across the foot bridge at the Joy to the Wind gallery, and had a great discussion with Lynne Seizer, co-owner. We chatted over our recent works depicting herons (my latest 10by10 is shown above), viewed the many and varied works Lynne and Jim Seitzer have hanging and then Lynne pointed us to the Studio 53 Gallery back across the foot bridge. We got there just as Bob McKay, featured artist for the month, was opening up. This is a great space having 3 floors with 8 artists represented showing a great selection from abstract to Maine landscapes. Bob talked about his methods and techniques and then autographed a copy of his book "Percival, the Lighthouse Mouse," for our friends' grandkids. It was a very pleasant visit. As we crossed back and forth across the foot bridge, we noticed a dory in the water that was clearly the finished version of the dory being worked on in my "Harbormaster's Workshop" soft block print. Take a look and see.

Lovely post about your recent visit to BBH, thanks for the mention of my father and his recent book. It was so fun to see his excitement as he created and completed the story of Percival! My children keep asking when the second book will be underway as they are eager to hear more of his adventures.
I enjoyed viewing your portfolio on picasa and Harbormaster's Workshop block print is wonderful.
