I think we may be pretty close to the top of leaf season color. Yesterday I went to Nashua for the regular meeting of "the Breakfast Club" which consists of local artists. I feel like a bit of an imposter because I haven't done any painting OR encaustic since we moved. I've been too busy with knitting, family and putting things away.
Anyway, after that meeting I let Garmina guide me to Exeter by a Northerly route, which took me through LOTS of brightly colored trees. Even though it was a drizzly day, I think you can get the drift. These are cropped photos that I took "one handed" with the camera pointing out of the passenger side door: through the window. So don't be surprised at rain splotches here and there.
Crossing the Merrimack River
Every tree is its own unique shape and has its own coloring. AMAZING!
I stopped first at the Exeter Fine Crafts gallery. It used to be part of the New Hampshire Craft Guild, but it took itself private a while back in order that they could market work by craftspeople who were from the surrounding states. I thought the work was all of very high quality AND much of it was whimsical.
Jane Kaufman. Collectible!
Mary Margaret Sweeney
They also had Lithographs from Carol Travers Lummus. Her work almost always makes me laugh out loud. I saw other prints by her at The Barn in Ogunquit.
Scarlet Cord Designs. I especially enjoyed that these incorporate needle-felted wool AND felted sweaters AND charms.
