"Good Dog, Bailey!"
On our way to our painting retreat in Maine last month, my buddy Sally Dean Mello and I pulled off the highway to take a break. In a shopping center parking lot there was this huge tank of water with a ramp, and a lot of dogs (mostly, but not all, retriever types) in line. Turns out it was some kind of competition for the dogs to run and leap as far as they could, pick up their toy that had been tossed, and swim back. To say that these dogs had a blast was an understatement. They could NOT get their turn again soon enough! I've gotten 2 of my 3 painted, on 12x12 gallery wrapped (no need for frames) canvases. They are now at the Art Stable Gallery at 835 Main Road in Westport, MA.
The South Coast Open Studio Tour for July (I'm doing the August tour at my house and I would LOVE to see you!) happens all around our gallery. Here's what I suggest, on this lovely weekend. Stop by the gallery around lunchtime. The shop next door, called Partners Village Store, has fabulous lobster rolls, $19, and worth every penny, with fresh local lobster, and a lovely patio to eat on right in front of the gallery!!!! Now, here's the tip: call your sandwich order in ahead (they also have great ham, turkey and veggie sandwiches) because it's a half hour wait. Then come, devour, and stop in to the Gallery. I'm going to try to be there around lunchtime at least on Saturday. I'd be so happy to meet you! Anyway, clicking on the link HERE, will get you the downloadable Tour Guide. Email me if you'd like the insider's guide to some really cool artists....
And a *shout out* to Margaret - (friend of Maria Hock's!) for stopping in the gallery last week while I was there.... SO great to meet you!
