Happy New Year!

FullSizeRender-8

Where does the time go? Here we are at the beginning of another new year… I hope that 2016 brings us all happiness and health and wealth and wisdom and everything else we may desire.

It amazes me though that 2015 almost seems like a blur, and again I must say, where does the time go? Time is definitely a relative thing, and I love this quote on the subject by Albert Einstein:

“Put your hand on a hot stove for a minute, and it seems like an hour. Sit with a pretty girl for an hour, and it seems like a minute. That’s relativity.”

So I guess the most important thing when it comes to time is not to worry about how quickly it passes, but instead to think about how you want to spend it. I think I’d rather sit with a pretty girl…

Happy New Year and here’s to time well spent!

Small But Mighty

Words are a powerful thing… These pieces are no bigger than an index card, but hopefully they pack a punch. They’d make a perfect last-minute gift (only $18 each or 2 for $30 – more photos available on request). Created with vintage paper, ephemera and salvaged wood.

Musical Memories…

trombone

Vintage sheet music for trombone found at Brocante Market! I love using sheet music in my art but this brought back memories… I played the trombone in middle school. I remember lugging that thing around wondering why I had chosen it as my instrument. If I had known then how cool playing the trombone could really be (see Trombone Shorty), I may have continued to play…

Custom Work…

This custom ordered piece went to its new home the other day! Adapted from a larger piece I created, this version of “Unpathed Waters” had been requested to give as a birthday gift. The “canvas” used was a vintage wood and galvanized drawer and little elements were added to make the piece more personal. I love creating something knowing who it’s for… The next custom project centers around coastal Maine. I can’t wait to get started!

“Bella Vita”

“Bella Vita” or “Beautiful Life” – this piece was created by enlarging a vintage glass slide. The original slide measures about 4″ x 3″ and the image is Venice, Italy. The background is vintage sheet music. The frame is an old wooden ice box door from a local fish market that closed. It was painted white but the natural wood is so beautiful I had to sand the paint off… The finished piece measures almost 3 feet square.
