LOCAL ARTIST PETER TYSVER : TONIGHT!!! THE TRIBUTE EXHIBITION

I happened upon Peter painting a few weeks back near the lily pond on Eastern Avenue, and I just had to stop and see what he was working on. I was stunned at the beauty of his work. This is one of many pieces you can find at the TRIBUTE EXHIBITION at the North Shore Arts Association going on July 30th through August 10th. The big reception is tonight from 6-8pm!! Peter was as kind, and as talented, as you would imagine.  There will be amazing work from many other artists as well.

Olive Kitteridge Filming in East Gloucester

Olive Kitteridge HBO miniseries   -1 ©Kim Smith 2013. copyOlive Kitteridge, the HBO miniseries, was filming at the North Shore Art Association yesterday.

Olive Kitteridge, the book, is a collection of short stories written by Elizabeth Stout, and is set in the town of Crosby, Maine. Olive Kitteridge was the 2009 Pulitzer Prize winner for fiction.

Early that same morning I had taken Rosie for her morning walk. The sunlight streaming sideways through the fog shrouded trees was gorgeous and our hood had a new look for the day; the North Shore Art Association had become Crosby Lyons Club and the parking lot was filled with vintage cars from the 1970s and 1980s .

World’s Greatest Mitten-Glove Design for Photographers

Kate Spade Mitten Glove ©Kim Smith 2013

I am just crazy about this mitten design because of the handy flap, which when flipped back, reveals a fingerless glove. If you want to wear it flipped back all the time the button and loop closure keeps the flap securely in place. The mitten-glove even has a convenient separate thumb flap.

The only tweaking this design needs is a slightly bigger button and loop because when your hands are freezing, the small loop and ball button are a challenge to negotiate. For all the knitters who read GMG–these would be wonderful in a cashmere or alpaca blend and perhaps a pretty cable knit pattern.

The mitten-glove is a great design for photographers especially. When wearing gloves, I find it easy to accidentally press the wrong button or get myself into an unwanted mode.

Even with mitten-glove configuration, my pooch and I only lasted about ten minutes in the howling wind when we went for our daily afternoon walk yesterday—straight to the bottom of our hill (Pirates Lane at Smith’s Cove) and straightaway home. Sorry Rosie the Rocket, you’ll have to get your crazy energy out on our next walk!
