I’m a Fish in a Tank (aka The Estate’s Seafood Festival)

This past Sunday was a much different day at the studio. My usually silent, but breezy residency/studio at the Deering Estate at Cutler was rambunctious, primary-colored and glittering with coconut shrimp.

I had the pleasure of welcoming visitors into my studio. I joked with my fiancé, “They look at us artists in our studios like exotic fish in a tank.” It was a not-a-cloud-in-the-sky day. Reggae beats drifted in the sea air. Kids ran around with hot pink snow cone mustaches dodging through the buzzin’ grownups.

To give you some context, this area is normally a vast green meadow-like area.

This is the entrance to my studio which used to be the Estate’s carriage house.

I put some glitter on my business cards for the kids; it was a hit.
