Ireland June 2012

Just returned from a fabulous trip to Ireland, the land where all seems unreal.  It felt as though we were walking through a fairytale.  The landscape was stunning, the castles and ruins awe inspiring, the people warm and friendly and soooo much fun to listen to.  The food was scrumptious and the Guiness fine!  Some work will surely come out of this.  In fact, I just finished a tiny 14" X 3" landscape based on a photo of the Irish landscape. I've attached it here along with some shots from our trip.  Look for more in the months, perhaps weeks, to come.

I had the great honor, last Wednesday, May 23rd, 2012 to be one of four recipients of the Louise Tillotson Teaching Fellowship.  The goal of the Louise Tillotson Teaching Fellowship program is to raise awareness of the value of excellence in education.  Fellowship recipients are chosen based on their commitment to public education, breadth of experience, innovation in education, creativity in solving problems, communication skills and inspiration.  Receiving this award is certainly a high point in my career.  I'm grateful there are opportunities such as these that recognize teachers and the hard and challenging work that they do.  I continue to love teaching and always am inspired by the students I teach.

"Secret Places" at Fiddleheads

Last night's opening of "Secret Places" was it's usual relaxing evening of art, music and friends. Got to play with Harold Boydston and his antique Gibson. What a treat! Wish I could have done it better justice. Some wonderful artwork as always interpreting the theme. If you're in town be sure to check it out.

Chamber Mixer

Last night's (Jan. 26) Chamber Mixer at the lovely historic Courthouse in Lancaster, NH hosted by Steve Bissonnette, financial advisor, was by all accounts a great success. About 40 attendees enjoyed some old time country music by Lyndell Demers, Roland Cotnoir and friends, delicious food by the Lion and the Rose caterers and of course the beautiful art of a variety of CRAG members. Steve is the proud owner of my painting "Keazer's Place" and it currently hangs in his wonderful office in this most outstanding piece of architecture. The entire exhibition will hang until Feb. 4.
