First Friday Maine Style

Since we were in Maine for the first Friday in July, Kelly thought it would be a good idea if we all created a piece of art to display on Friday night as a First Friday Art Walk, since we would be missing it back in Bend.

Everyone got involved and worked on their projects throughout the week.  We had all the art displayed on the front deck and enjoyed looking it over while drinking wine and swatting mosquitoes.

One of Cindy's projects was this painting she did on driftwood.

Delaney did this montage of the sea, which included a boat, starfish, lobster trap, fish and sea urchin.

Cindy also created this egret made from wire and shell and mounted on driftwood.

Brad used a magnifying glass to burn the letters on this driftwood.

Dave decided to do a project with photos he took throughout the week.  Each of the photos were displayed in a slide show and then brought all together in the final slide as shown here.  Indian Point is the southern tip of Georgetown Island where the cabin is located.

Kelly used rocks he collected with wire and beads and brought them all together to create this rock sun catcher chain which is hanging from a tripod he made from tree branches.  It's still sitting at Keller's cabin for other's to enjoy.

Everyone enjoying the art.

Kristin used wire, beads and sea glass she collect at the beach, to make these decorative hiking sticks for she and John.

This is Jacob's contribution.  He loves pirate ships!

Ana made all these paintings as well as the sign with her last name on driftwood.

Spenser painted this buoy with his interpretation of the ocean and local beaches, which he hung inside a lobster trap he found on the rocks.

John created this beautiful Zen piece with driftwood, rocks, shells, bark and wildflowers he picked.  

Everyone had such a good time making and displaying their projects.  Here everyone is toasting to the success of the evening.
