along U.S. 1, Route 27 and the Damariscotta 'River Road'
in Coastal Maine
As we return to "big time" (oops: we meant "full time"!) roll work in the ARTCRAFT Studio, it seemed logical to 'share' our spectacular Fall with the Newsletter readers. So, here's our Autumn scrapbook for October '00:
One of the delights, just before reaching Searsport Shores Camping, where our perforating/vacation trailer is located, was the BELFAST "BEARFEST" ... a special "street art event" that took place during Summer and Fall -- ending on October 21st, when the bears were to be auctioned off for the Arts. While Chicago had cows, Belfast chose bears, and there were over 43 all around the city - plus one at the Information Bureau near the Maine border. We managed to photograph almost all of them, and several samples are shown below:
These Belfast Bears were made of fiberglass ... and if all the on-line auction bids go through, many of them will be spread around the country soon after October 21st. The only bear "left" will be Tidal Bear, who emerges from the harbor water at low tide ... and he, we haven't seen yet, being in Belfast when the waters were high.
Fall is over and we'll be publishing some "major league" (or rather "significant") ARTCRAFT Roll releases in very short order. We'll miss Summer/Fall in Maine, but the challenging work in the Studio should be very rewarding and productive.
Hope you enjoyed our little photographic Web page of the Season!
