Me in a nutshell

My photo
Pretty much every morning I get up at sunrise and take a walk with my dog.I like a big cup of coffee in the morning and a cold beer in the evening.I enjoy building stuff and for sure over my life have made more than my fair share of sawdust.Now I love to paint.It all started in July of 2009 when I took a painting class at the local art co-op.

Plein air with friends

I found this photo on my camera.
I painted this on the west coast just before Irene hit Hatteras Island.A few days later when the airports reopened I headed east to take care of Irene's damage .I found that my wee studio was flooded with rancid sound water and I had to strip out everything below about 3 feet on the lower floor.All my paintings  were drowned.
The studio is drying out but still stinks.However I did get of luckier than many so I have also been busy helping friends clean up their damage.I haven't had time to paint lately so thought I would put this photo on my blog as a reminder of how much fun it is to paint
Clean up is going great and in a few weeks the washed out road in will reopen.We have a tight knit community here in the tri-villages and everyone is pulling together.Life will get back to easier times and Irene will begin to fade in memory

  1. Mick,
    So sorry to hear about your studio and paintings! Irene was a nasty storm and wreaked havoc in the eastern Adirondacks but we were spared (other than losing power for a few hours).
    I hope the clean up continues smoothly and you are back to painting soon.
