Creativity display. My daughter Morrigan came and helped me set-up. Colleen, my wife, joined us once the event had started. This photo shows the display I pulled together for the evening. I borrowed the 10 1/2 riser and repainted it with this robins egg blue that came from the mis-tint table at our local Maine Paint Store. I was lucky, at 1/10 the cost, I found the exact color I was after. One of the sample legs, behind the far end of the bench, is painted to simulate a candlepin.
The evening was sponsored by the MCC. One of their larger projects is the design competition and execution of painting 16 oil storage tanks in Portland. For more, please click here. Morrigan took this arial photo of the model of the project that was on display. The roadways in the photo represent I-295 as one approaches Portland from the South.

Creativity display. My daughter Morrigan came and helped me set-up. Colleen, my wife, joined us once the event had started. This photo shows the display I pulled together for the evening. I borrowed the 10 1/2' riser and repainted it with this robin's egg blue that came from the "mis-tint" table at our local Maine Paint Store. I was lucky, at 1/10 the cost, I found the exact color I was after. One of the sample legs, behind the far end of the bench, is painted to simulate a candlepin.


One of my strategies for survival is to connect and communicate about my work in a variety of positive venues. This evening, sponsored by The Maine Center for Creativity (MCC), was my latest public foray.
