Life is chaotic, complex, noisy,
and at times painfully full.
These paintings are a reflection of my need for peace and quiet.
Using nothing but white paint and found objects
I hope to created a space of
and a visual opportunity for slowing down.
I hope you weathered that crazy storm that just blew through Gloucester! It was wild.

Seacoast Seven Road Race
Hope that you can pass this info along!
Once again this Saturday (July 21) Stage Fort Park will be the center of activity as runners, walkers, and caregivers join together to raise funds for the Seacoast Nursing and Rehabilitation Center.
What a wonderful way to start a glorious summer morning and for such a great cause.
Even if you can’t find time to participate on Saturday, please check out www.seacoastseven.com and possibly make a donation. Sorry to get all Pollyanna-ish on you, but why not think of visiting and getting to know one of the wonderful residents or rehab patients at Seacoast. As Huey Lewis (I could so see him playing at Seacoast) so aptly put it, “Don’t need money, don’t need fame, don’t need no credit card to play this game”. Time is still on our side and I can’t think of any better way to be “a good kid” than caring for another human being. You can make a difference – Please do!
Thanks, Joey, I know this is a Special place for you as well. Here’s a photo of my 87 year old Dad (broken hip – finally coming coming home after 3 months in Rehab at Seacoast.) Pictured are the two physical therapists that he yucked it up with everyday. They have been such a great help – both in keeping him happy and making him better.
You’re the Best – Not like all the Rest!
