Winslow Homer Studio

Shot of Winslow Homer's deck view, in this month's Portland Magazine.

Stairs leading to both the bathroom (on the right) and the studio (to the left) .
 Would you be inspired by this view while taking a bath?  I know I would!
One of the views from Homer's studio area.  I like the architectural detail here.
"Oh what a friend change can be when it chooses." --Winslow Homer quote on the wall.
View from the Cliff Path right in front of the Homer property. 
Another view of the bathroom, and it's lovely view, looking down the short hallway.
And last but not least, Winslow Homer often signed his own windows.  Maybe certain paintings were done looking out these windows?  I would love to know more about this.  You can sort of read his name here. 
I had the good fortune to photograph Winslow Homer's beautiful, austere art studio on Prout's Neck in Scarborough, Maine, back in July.  I had so much fun deciding on angles and wondering what paintings might have been painted out of which windows back in his day.  It is a lovely, well-kept building with all kinds of interesting architectural details.

The first picture is a scan of the heading for the blurb about the studio in this month's issue of Portland Magazine.

You can see all of these pictures on my website. Have you ever been to Homer's studio?  If so, have an interesting story to relate?  Or are you a Homer fan?  I'd love to hear from you!

Common Ground Fair 2012

Sights from 2012's Common Ground Fair
My family and I went to The Common Ground Fair in Unity, Maine two Sundays ago and had a great time.  The drive is always beautiful, winding through fields of corn and farmland.  We hadn't been in several years, so it was great to see people out, enjoying the beautiful weather at the fairgrounds.  Since we were there last, they added a farmers' market.  The smells of good, organic food floated everywhere, the sounds of children laughing and playing, yarn and whole fleeces for sale, Alpacas, oxen, draft horses, chickens and other farm animals on display, great music being played in various places, all made for a wonderful experience. 

If you went this year, leave a comment and tell me about your great experiences.  Happy Autumn everyone!


welcome to my world!
