Summer Doings - Odds and Ends

We had a terrific day at the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston.
That's the Chihuly Glass Tree in the new Atrium where we
also had lunch.

While visiting our new tenants in Quincy we stopped at
the Squatum Yacht Club where Heather spent most of her
summers.  Some of her family still belong here and that's
her father James' painting over the bar.

Scott attended a three day Progressive Change Campaign
Committee Field Organizing Class held in Portland, ME.

Both of us took a week long class at the Sculpting Studio
in West Rutland in Cold Casting. This shows our first
project, a two dimensional tile getting ready for the 2nd
plaster pouring. We're making a mold that will allow us

Paula was there as well.

 and Dancing in the Streets. I had 26 paintings in two rooms
for the month of August. I was part of a group show with

completed and framed for the exhibit but well worth it!

Caribbean Princess, Not Osh Kosh and Animal Buddies -
all in acrylics.

Oils, Waiting for the Bus and Tea Time on the Road, were
from my visit to Afganistan in 1968.

Under the Green Umbrella, also oil, hung in the
MFA as part of a student exhibit when I was
studying there.

Sculptors and friends from the Carving Studio came for the

Brent, Wilma, LaVerne, Wandi and Joseph came for a visit
in August. Here Brent and I pose on the AT. We enjoyed
some great hikes with Scott.

This photo was on the front page of the Rutland Herald
and was taken at our Fifth Anniversary Party for Pierce's
Store on August 31st. It was a huge success with over a
hundred people attending. As you can see I worked the
