Art, friends and foliage in Pepperell, MA

 Saturday, a friend from the Nashua Artists' Breakfast Club had an opening reception at the Lawrence Library in Pepperell, MA.  It was kind of a dreary day, although the Fall color may well have been at its peak.
 Peter's love for drawing, painting and art apparently began in childhood and continued through his military assignments in Viet Nam, San Diego, Hawaii, and post-military work in Massachusetts.
 One section of his show was devoted to paintings inspired by his time in Hawaii.  I wish these photographs didn't look like the dragon boat was trying to devour him.

 He made several sales!  I think he's closing a deal here.
 His sister came for the festivities.  He posed in front of her favorite painting.

 I was happy to find myself in a REAL library atmosphere.  (The sign in the upper left hand corner says "Think for yourself and let others do so, too."
 I found a couple of nearby scenes that I might paint one of these days.
