squamlove-2013I went to the Squam Art Fair last night in Holderness, NH.  I got a pin cushion from Cal Patch. It was funny to meet her in person.  We have her book at the Portsmouth Public Library.  I also got a handmade ceramic mug from Elizabeth Benotti.  I like her style.

I’m inspired to make stuff.

Look at this fun animated gif I made to help promote the Artist Curated Book Display program series at the library.  These 10 books were selected by Patrick Healey.  He is the featured artist for December 2012.  If you are a local yokel, you should try to come to his artist talk on Wednesday, December 12th at 7PM at the Portsmouth Public Library.  Patrick will talk about the path he has taken, what inspires him to create and why he continues to work as an artist.  Patrick is so fun.  I’m really looking forward to his talk.  I think it will be a fun casual event.  You should come.FINAL-PAT-HEALEY-ACBD-BOOK-450-wide-GIFI stole this gif idea from the JCrew 770 Behind the Line blog.  Neat, right.

Here are some examples of Patrick Healey’s artwork from his website.  Come and see his art in person on display at the library for the month of December.  It’s good to get up close and personal with art.
