Hurricane Irma’s aftermath

Posted by: frank in News 2 Comments »

I guess everyone on Island will have their own stories of the passing of Hurricane Irma.  I hunkered down in my house, listening to the roar, with new sweet puppy Liam basically on my head.  That next day, I hitched into town, as my exit road was blocked.  Just about fell to my knees in prayers of thanks when I saw the gallery intact and unscathed.  Shocked to see beautiful old Rose Cottage next door demolished by the winds!   The clean up and rebuilding are well under way, and I notice great strides forward daily.

A really quite perfect day.  Boat racing on the horizon (part of Summer Festival), a group of great friends at the table, and these really quite remarkable lobster, shrimp and mahi tacos.  A ‘ti punch to start, some lovely rose wine with, and a swim after…..

The best waiting room

A big thank you to the talented Kim Workman for sending the gallery these 5 particularly beautiful small paintings, based on gyotaku fish-rubbings.  I truly enjoy telling visitors to the gallery about her technique, but the superb quality of the work is what makes them shine.

Food Art

As most of you know, two of my great passions are great food and great art.  Imagine my wonderment when the two are combined.  I was tickled by the watermelon sculpture at the buffet at Zemi Beach today.  DEEEE-lightful, as was the particularly delicious breakfast spread…
