The Amaryllis in the house is blossoming, and I'm not sure exactly where it came from, but it has been here awhile and has a "history" from or around this family. I read a biography of Georgia O'Keeffe this past winter and have a senior student who had never seen O'Keeffe's work and yet peripherally approached its style on her own, and I connected her with the artist just this week. It was so rewarding to see the light come on in her eyes. I know I have mentioned O'Keeffe before in this blog, but I can't help myself.
I was born in Ellsworth and grew up in Winter Harbor, Maine and have lived here most of my life. I received my Bachelor's (1973) and Master's (2005) degrees from the University of Maine. I am a Maine boy through and through.
