Okay, I'm giving a new label to myself, as a resident of  coastal Massachusetts, and a frequent appreciative visitor to a family place in Maine, where my Mother's roots lie- " MassMaineiac";    The unionI of the positive parts of two nicknames...

I had the very unusual experience of seeing a group of seven loons visiting together in the middle of Watchic lake on an early morning kayak, and have included them in several paintings done this summer; celebrating  both the beauty of a small lake in Maine, and these majestic birds with their haunting cries, and special life cycle.
