Featured Artist: Stan Moeller!

Uncle Henry’s by Stan Moeller 11×14 Oil

The Lupine Gallery and the Island Inn will be presenting a fabulous show of Stan Moeller‘s paintings of Monhegan Island and France! What a show it’s going to be. I cannot wait to see it! If you’re fortunate enough to be on the island on June 28, 2017 – there is an opening reception from 2:00-4:00 PM. What a good time!

Here is a bit about the show, from the Lupine Gallery website:

STAN MOELLER: FROM MONTMARTRE TO MONHEGAN

The Lupine Gallery and the Island Inn will be showcasing Stan Moeller’s paintings of Monhegan Island and Paris, France in the 2017 Island Inn Show, “Stan Moeller: from Montmartre to Monhegan.”  The exhibit will be on view from Friday, May 26 through Sunday, October 8. The public is invited to a reception for the artist at the Island Inn on Wednesday, June 28 from 2-4 pm.

Stan Moeller has been painting and teaching oil painting workshops on Monhegan since the 1990’s. He describes his style as “Modern Impressionism with a little Contemporary Realism and a smidge of the Ashcan school.” The works on display reflect his passion for painting on site and his ability to capture the energy of a moment—whether the power of an ocean wave or the gesture of a figure in a café.

There has been a strong thread of connection between Monhegan and Paris for over 100 years, as American artists who were drawn here to paint the rugged and rustic life of the island were also drawn to the Paris art scene. In the late 19th and early 20th century, the hill of Montmartre was a mecca for painters, and many of Monhegan’s most prominent artists lived and studied in Paris, bringing the latest movements in European art back with them.

Stan travels annually between Maine and Europe to paint two of his favorite muses: Monhegan and Paris. This show brings together, for the first time, his paintings of these two iconic places. The owners of the Island Inn, Jaye Morency and Michael Brassard, split their time between Monhegan and Paris each year, and were inspired to bring their love of their two favorite places together in this exhibition.

Flowers… again!

There has been a common theme to most of my posts this week… flowers. They’re stunning, in all shapes, colors and sizes they have been abundant this week! This is a photo I took of an arrangement that we had from a friend. Beautiful, isn’t it? So fresh and different!

Happy day!

When things seem impossible…

When things seem impossible… remember they are not! How can plants grow in tiny crevices between a slab of concrete and a concrete wall? Where there is a will, there is a way! Always believe it!

That’s my glass-half-full thought for the day!

Marion Square Flowers – Charleston, SC!

The plants in Marion Square (Charleston, SC) are stunning… I believe these are called Coneflowers? Correct me if I’m wrong… There are some stunning flowers in this world, isn’t there?

Keep your eyes out for the beauty… the little things… it’s there if you look! 👀

I can’t even make it through Lowes…

Beautiful, right? We were zipping through Lowes and up high on a shelf I saw these beauties… I reached up high and snapped a photo. That’s right, I can’t even make it through Lowes without taking a photo. There is probably a cure for this, but I don’t want to know what it is!

Enjoy your day!

Spa day!

Spa day! The other day, when the weather was a little too chilly for an outdoor bath we took Charlie to Dolittle’s… it’s his store, he loves it (he loved it even more when he could eat dog treats, but is perfectly happy to at least stroll through and say hello sans doggie treats!) He was lathered up and then coated with a wonderful conditioner that kept his wild hair happy for some time! I think he enjoyed it!
