I was really impressed with a young artist named Sean Flood who painted some great large cityscapes. Turns out he has a studio in Abington! Now how come I never heard of him before the show. I can't wait to see the work he produces as he matures!
There was food and music and great art to be had! I really enjoyed myself and felt grateful to had been invited to such an eclectic show

My family took our annual trek to Braintree to enjoy the 4th of July Celebration with our new roomie, my cousin's daughter Kim from Quebec. We love to be outside in the evening while trying to see how many of our old classmates we can still recognize. The rain forced the fireworks to the next evening and made for double the fun! It started to rain just as the fireworks hit the finale. It was a great way to show our Canadian relative how we celebrate our great country.
