So beautiful and just in time to start the new year without any plastic, paper or what have you! Organic and beautiful. Pomegranate pattern in marmalade color here or natural. Watch for their very cool new melamine plates to appear in the shop too!
Hope everyone is starting to wind down for the holidays now and enjoying the coziness of the season....

Liz Kalloch's vibrant wall of art!
one evening and song of revival
These lovely mixed media paintings are part of our eQuniox exhibition - all the way from (relatively) sunny San Fransisco. How nice to feel the warmth right now here in NH from these pieces. They are a riot of color and simply radiate from the walls. I will let the photos do the talking here. All in the shop and ready to ship out right away to you!

More ink sketches... available in my etsy shop...
Most people in our area now have power restored, but it's been a really long haul and well, this little sketch shows on the outside, how many people have felt on the inside.
But stiff upper lip here in New England! No pouting!

looking up to the front.... where are the sculptures?
by Tom Glover
Sarah Ahearn's lovely work
more Tom Glover
Liz Kollach's vibrant work...
Here are a few snapshots from the new exhibition at artstream: To Rome, To Roam featuring Tom Glover's new paintings and Megan Bogonovich's new sculptures. Tom has simply knocked himself out with beautiful renditions from abstracted views to colorful realistic streets in Rome as well as over 30 sepia watercolored sketch paintings of Rome. Megan's sculptures feature six brand new fresh from the studio works which evoke a sense of discovery or roaming (hence the theme, cough cough) within them. Come, see for yourself, at the opening of this fun exhibition and forget your cold New England worries of winter heating bills ... bask in the Roman sunshine and scramble up the mountain of shell like structures to find a little fantasy atop with us tomorrow night at the opening... 5-8 or so. Roam with us, if you will.
As if that were not enough, we also have two amazing women in the eQuinox gallery during this show - Sarah Ahearn Bellemere from Ithaca NY and Liz Kalloch from the San Fransico Bay area. Their mixed media works are as sunny as their own personalities - I met them both in person at Squam and was so pleased that they would appear in our gallery for this show. We have the full set of photos filling up at our flickr and by tomorrow night .. (or perhaps just a wee bit later) we will have the full show online in our shop for purchase. But for now, some shots of the installation in the gallery. More to come tomorrow too... and much earlier!

partially done north window...tomorrow is another day...
1000 posts? I didn't even see it coming! How time does fly when you are having fun! Thank you all for your lovely feedback and support!
A new show up here at artstream, with loads of goodness from Tom Glover and Megan Bogonovich and Liz Kalloch and Sarah Ahearn.
Me? I have been: Workin'. Messing about. Dusting and pointing a lot. It's all good though as there is a real warmth of Roman sun glowing off the walls in here - a nice offset to the cold cold out-of-doors reality which winter has blown in this week.
Off to home now to recharge my batteries and sip some tea. Have a wonderful night/day in your part of the world! Tomorrow will bring loads of photos ... I am still sorting, messing about, working with them all.
p.s. don't forget to comment on the blogoversary post and win one of the three giveaways!

A side path taken:: a walk in the woods with Melanie. Exploring the small ways - today I read her post here and realized that I really do love mushrooms. I mean in a passionate way. We used to go "mushrooming" as a family when I was small. I always loved being in the woods and finding them made me feel like it was Easter all over again. Melanie has brought these little wonders to a state of high art with her photographs. Go take a peek!
