Bowtie Wearer With Bad Knees
I spent my early years in Massachusetts in a little town called Easton. I went to Harvard, served in the Navy as Operations Officer on and LST, founded a construction company and served in the state Legislature as Assistant Minority Leader.
However my life really began when I moved to Maine and opened an art gallery.
I've been around the fine arts in the commercial art business for over 25 years now and loved (almost) every minute of it.
I look at every day is a gift, except when it's very cold outside or I have to go to the dentist.
I’m getting tired of posting doom and gloom monochrome images telling of the difficult times we’re going through, sooo here’s a change of pace. Yes, we are still under a shelter at home order. Yes, we are directed to wear masks when we venture out AND yes, there’s also a curfew in place.
BUT this Beacon Hill matron is doing it with so much style, one can’t help but smile.
I’m posting this image simply as photograph I’m fond of, as well as a visual commentary on our current covid-19 locked down situation. Leaving aside the current corona virus pandemic, I like the way the line on the floor leads to the locked gate with its sign. The leading lines are nice and I like the way the light fades in the distance.
Switching to the photograph as commentary, currently the world is in a dark place. The end of these hard times are dimly in view but a clear vision of what’s ahead still is far from clear.
The older I get (and that’s pretty damn old) the more I appreciate the marks that aging leaves. If this tree was a perfectly formed spruce I doubt it would attract half the interest that this old warrior does.
