Opening Reception in Stonington ME

Here I am with artist Nancy Morgan Barnes at the opening reception for our two-person show at the gWatson Gallery in Stonington, Maine. Yes, I know my eyes are closed, but it was the best of the photos. At least it's a good one of Nancy. It was great to finally meet her and some of the other artists and collectors at the reception. By the end of the evening, we had both sold paintings of the same bridge, very different viewpoints--hers was a ground-level view of recent construction activity and mine was an aerial view--but there is something appealing about the subject, a graceful suspension structure spanning Eggemoggin Reach and connecting Little Deer Isle with the mainland. Every time I visit Stonington I'm struck anew by its spectacular setting, interesting architecture, interesting and welcoming people, and abundance of artists and galleries.
