Art In The Park Bonus!

I took the plunge and signed up for Art in the Park this year in  Mill Creek Park, South Portland.  The weather couldn't have been better.  The last customer of the day was Celeste who does the morning show with the Captain at WBLM.  She very kindly put the following on her blog at the station website.  I'm so glad she's happy with the tin she bought of my daughter Chelsea's painting!  She does say that I put my paintings on the magnets when...I wish!  I think the painting gene skipped a generation!  They're actually my photographs but...you knew that! TThhen

The artistic talent in our community is amazing. Here is a beeswax painting done by Lori Austill. I bought my first piece from her some time in the early 90′s. It’s a painting done on plaster and I still love it! I’m hoping Mark takes the hint and gifts me with this beeswax painting for my birthday!

Do you have a favorite local artist? Turn us on to them on our Facebook Fan Page #localart, or tweet us! Shout out to Zoo Cain!

Here’s hoping Mark visits loriaustill.com before August 25th!

I’m a much better photographer than writer so hang in there if I make too many mistakes. Actually, I think I’m an even better comedienne than photographer. The reason I say this is because I just seem to have a knack for making people smile and look happy. Which comes in REAL handy as a photographer. Getting your subject to look as natural as possible can be difficult if you don’t get them to loosen up and show their natural side.
