Do you remember this?

This is a painting we bought many years ago from Joy Biddle. I believe it was painted looking out of that house. The building across the street is Sailor Stan’s. It’s a shame that the building is now gone.

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.

  1. I think so too. The side of the building beyond the fence is Sailor Stan’s. When it was the Joan Kerry Gallery, the front yard was a jungle of flowers and grasses, which appear in the painting. Very creative garden, just like Joan.

    All that interesting gingerbread, too bad that no one had a vision to restore it.

    I remember that building it was always Whimsical looking. There were in Gloucester from the 50- 70 many homes and building that had that charm but it was fading then a period of slow change till new inspiration turned the city around to a bright clean and Proud City.
