Carrie’s Painting of the Week – 8/8/2012

Wednesday Morning Salt Marsh

By Carrie Jacobson

While the house is still a chaotic disaster, we are pretty much all moved, so breathe a big sigh of relief, and raise a cheer, and let me know if you need anything.

Table lamps? We seems to have six extra ones.

Nice drapey clothes that look good at work and are still comfortable? Finally, I am ready to let them go.

And if there’s anyone out there who needs plastic containers, kosher salt or throw rugs, drop me a line.

This morning, instead of unpacking, I went down the street and painted.  It’s so beautiful here in Wachapreague, it makes my heart ache. Even on a gray old Wednesday morning, with nothing spectacular happening, no special sky, no amazing sunrise, this is still one of the loveliest places on earth.

And it is quiet. Except for the sound of the gulls, there was no noise. You hear no traffic, no trains, not even anything off in the distance. It is quieter in Wachapreague than it was in Bolster’s Mills, Maine.

Yes, moving was tough, but it was worth it to end up here.


If you’re in Connecticut this weekend, stop by the Mystic Outdoor Art Festival! It’s an excellent and big show, with high-quality work – and it’s fun. Mystic is great for a weekend outing, too, as the Mystic Seaport, Mystic Aquarium and Olde Mystic Village shopping center are all there. Mystic is also just a stone’s throw from the Rhode Island beaches, some of the best in New England.

If you go to the show, please stop by my booth and say hello. I’ll be at the corner of Willow and Main, across from the post office and near the bagel place.
