Dominic Nesta and his unmistakeable fishing boat ‘Tide Skipper’ coming home Friday night, with the Fort in the background. I think the pilot house on the small book gives it a very interesting, unique look, making it always easy to identify whenever seen in the Harbor.

Unexpectedly I encountered a stunning bird that let me stand within only a few feet while photographing and filming, for quite a good long length of time. I hope to post tomorrow after I have time to look at the photos but in the mean time, love the feet! In one piece of literature that I read, the feet were described as golden slippers. With those corn on the cob toes and black claw-like toe-tips, I wouldn’t exactly describe them as such!

Heron feet copyright Kim SmithThe corncoblike serrations on the toes are used to remove mud and fish slime during grooming. Strong, unwebbed feet allow the bird to walk and run great distances while foraging. 

Another great workshop at the Essex Shipbuilding Museum

I have taken this course at the Essex Shipbuilding Museum quite a few times and every time been there have learned something new.  Wish to thank Lenny Burgess, Barry O’Brien, Dave Delorey and Tony Schettino for their guidance and patience.  We always have a great time.


JDG Jane Deering Pleasant opening night

Whether Annisquam, Boston, Concord, Santa Barbara, or London, art dealer and gallery owner Jane Deering  gives artists the great gifts of spaciousness and calm. Last night she opened JDG. This intimate new space in a renovated historic building on Pleasant Street in downtown Gloucester will give you an instant feel  of her serene sense of proportion. JDG will feature a program of contemporary mid-career and emerging artists living and working in Cape Ann, Santa Barbara, and the UK.

Juni Van Dyke and Jane Deering are two very talented sisters. Thanks to writer, Sean Farrell, for sending photos from the party. I borrowed Sean’s phone to snap pictures as my battery did not keep up with several exhibits I went to before stepping in to ponder and celebrate this new beginning. More on the other shows later.

Hi Joey, I took this pic Saturday morning at Wingaersheek Beach. Janice Brown from Dune Circle is in the photo. I posted on FB. She doesn’t have a FB page but a bunch of her Gloucester friends saw it & suggested I send it to you anticipating you’d post it on your blog. I am a Scituate MA resident.

American realist painter Edward Hopper is known to have painted in Gloucester on five separate occasions during the summer months in the years 1912, 1923, 1924, 1926 and 1928. His earliest visit in 1912 was made in the company of fellow artist Leon Kroll. During his second visit to Cape Ann in 1923, Hopper courted the young artist Josephine Nivison. He also began working in watercolor, capturing the local landscape and architecture in loosely rendered, light filled paintings. In 1924, Hopper and Nivison who were newly married returned to Gloucester on an extended honeymoon and continued to explore the area by foot and streetcar. During his final two visits to the area, in 1926 and 1928, Hopper produced some of his finest paintings. This special walking tour will explore the neighborhood surrounding the Museum, which includes many of the Gloucester houses immortalized by Hopper’s paintings.
