    A big thank you for featuring me in your Artists on Location page today.

    The coastal remoteness of Down East Maine especially its unique unexploited character that incorporate so well into landscapes and seascapes.

    Thank you if you stop on by, browse, just say hello, browse or leave a comment.
    I always enjoy talking shop or just exchanging thoughts.

    • I think it’s always fascinating to see where and how artists work. Art isn’t only a thing, it’s an experience. Happy to share yours with the readers.

  8. I enjoyed that! Wanted to see even more!!!

  9. Carolyn,

    It’s been so long since I’ve seen an artist working that this felt so good. Thank you. I use to “summer” with a group in our colony in Maine. Not much interaction. But, still, they were just nice to see around. It felt great to me. I didn’t know why, but I felt very comfortable around them. Now I know why!

    Thanks, again, Carolyn, for your unending specialness you have.

    Best Always,
