How nice of our calendar to compensate for its seasonality every four years and give us the extra day to put in a little more work, perhaps play hooky, or maybe, just celebrate another day with family and friends! Whatever the choice for you, enjoy!
And speaking of a little extra time, make sure you plan on taking some this First Friday at the Gallery at Harmon's & Barton's in order to fully take in the stunning work of our March exhibitor, landscape artist Neil Wyrick(www.freewebs.com/neilwyrickart/)! Neil has been painting his fingers to the bone creating several series of countryscapes, harborscapes and cityscapes for this show; and the Gallery walls are on fire with earthy hues, dramatic shadows and brilliant colors of the Greater Portland landscape. Neil has been painting for over 20 years, has exhibited throughout the Northwest and here in Maine where he makes his home in Falmouth. His oils are heavily influenced by the works of Edward Hopper and have a sense of energy and activity giving them a life of their own. Neil's favorite time of day to capture is around sunset, he enjoys trying different color combinations right on the canvas, and he loves watching his paintings evolve from the abstract to the realist painting with the last strokes on the canvas. Join Neil and all of us here at the Gallery this Friday evening for fine art, lovely flowers (the spring ones have arrived!) and warm conversation - it's an exhibit and sale you won't want to miss!!
Just a reminder as well to mark your calendars for the Portland Flower Show "Celebration!" March 7 - 11 at the Portland Company campus on Fore Street. Tickets may be purchased at Harmon's & Barton's Portland, Sawyer & Company, Minott's Flowers or on-line at www.portlandcompany.com . It's a time-honored annual event celebrating spring, gardening and landcaping in Maine, and the talented local vendors who create amazing exhibits with rock and blooms.
