Do You Know

carousel horse abstract copy

where the photo of the stained glass carousel horse was taken? This is a really tough one. I will be very surprised if someone knows. The horse was cut from its background and pasted into a photo of peeling paint on the hull of a boat at the Marine Railways.

About E.J.

Artist, researcher, writer, spiritual traveler of this fascinating orb we inhabit, lover of life and all it has to offer. Hi everyone out there in GMG land. My name is Ellen “E.J.” Lefavour (a/k/a “Ejay Khan” – the pseudonym I used during my years as a political activist artist). I moved to Cape Ann in September of 2010, and was thrilled to be invited by Joey to become a daily contributor to Good Morning Gloucester in December of that year. I am a painter, photographer and writer who has lived and worked as an artist for 20 years, since leaving the corporate world in 1990 to pursue my passion. My contributions to GMG will consist of images (either my paintings, photographs, montages or the occasional video) and a little history about the image, called “Did you Know?” I hope to come up with tidbits of information that people don’t already know, or had forgotten they knew. As I am new here, everything is new and fascinating to me, especially the amazing history, so bear with me if I post something that is common knowledge – I’ll eventually come up with something that’s new to you. As an artist, I will also write about the incredible art scene on Cape Ann. Please take a minute to comment on my posts, like them or not, especially if you have corrections or something to add, as that is how I, and all of us, learn. Have a Good Morning Gloucester, and a blessed day.

      Thanks Lenny. I am really enjoying creating them, and it is satisfying my love of abstract and the beauty of the scenery that surrounds us, while challenging my Photoshop skills and doing something different with some of my photos to create a fresh view of Cape Ann.

    The craft project stained glass by Harmony Stained Glass does look very much like the carousel horse photo in the collage, but this was a photograph I took of an actual stained glass window in the workshop of Ed Soucy on East Main Street, which hopefully survived the fire there this past summer.
