Bob Houses + Tiny Dwellings
Small dwellings living on frozen lakes, housing mad people who sit and wait for fish to come to their spot on the ice. I am not interested in what happens on the inside. I have always been enamoured with the look of these temporary communities popping up on the lakes around New Hampshire. Obsessed in a way, even. I have dozens of photographs of them from Newfound Lake, when I lived up there. I took this one at Alton Bay on Wednesday this week. Small community of tiny dwellings made from recycled materials, usually. Another painting series emerging from this inspiration, yet again. Last series was in watercolor in 1999. This time it will be on birch wood in acrylic.
On a personal note - Study that photo Edward... remember how cold it is here while you are in the sunny climes! send postcards and bonne chance in Venezuela and Cuba. See you in the spring, we'll miss you!
