Santa surfing Good Harbor Beach

Joey,

Here’s a photo I took of Santa stand up paddle surfing at Good Harbor Beach this morning. When asked why he was surfing here and not somewhere tropical like Hawaii he said that the 47 degree water felt like the tropics compared to the North Pole and that it was a shorter trip!

A whole lotta shakin goin on…Thursday Night Blues Party with Dave Sag’s To host Lisa Marie and Silvertone Steve ~ Tonight 8-11 @ The Rhumb Line

dsMan, I had a great Thanksgiving. I put on 2 pounds, lost my cell phone, and held a detailed argument with myself over adherence to the itmosphere. I found my phone and lost my mind and the argument. Now I’m ready for wellness with the addition of Ms. Lisa Marie to the show  tonight. And may I say, I can’t wait! The Divine Miss LM is one of the most beloved and heuristically hot smoking pals i’ve got. I’m talking lineups. She tends to bring out the best in her fans and the worst in my digestion, which is fine with me. Nothing three martinis can’t cure.
She’ll and her compadres will be dropped off by a series of drones supplied by Jeff Beezlebub, late of Amazon. Com. These include a version of Mr. Silvertone Steve, guitarist non pareil, and Mr. Dana Bonardi, goatskin whisker, on bongos. These specimens have just been released from MGH after a thorough investigation into their unusual growth of a third cojóne.I’Il be in the corner, wearing a full-face respirator, and looking like Vincent Price. Eat lots of garlic.
And, again, for those of you into Jello® and Depends®, I’ll be at the Rose Baker Senior Center next Two Mondays from 1 to 3, with the Good Old salty Jazz Band.you gotta see this. Forget Woodstock; this is more appropriate.

PaperHoliday-square-webRusty and Ingrid Creative Company presents:

“PAPER HOLIDAY”

Opening Reception: Thursday. Dec. 5th, 5–10 PM

Show will be up for the month of December.

At:

The Hive

11 Pleasant St.

Gloucester, MA 01930

Opening Ladies’ night  and running through the end of the month, Rusty and Ingrid Creative Company present  “Paper Holiday”— an exciting art show at the Hive Community Center, featuring the latest original artwork of Gloucester artist couple Rusty and Ingrid Kinnunen. The show will include stunning handmade, limited-edition art prints; stylish holiday decor; elegant jewelry; and illustrated children’s books. The reception will include holiday refreshments and a festive photo booth! Come meet the artists, and find a large selection of unique Christmas gifts!

Rusty and Ingrid Creative Company is a new art company — started in Gloucester less than a year ago— but they are quietly building a loyal following with iconic art and design, and a reputation for great value. Their art prints depict the landmarks and culture of Cape Ann in bold compositions with fresh colors and simple imagery. Their style has references to vintage poster and illustration art, but it is strikingly contemporary and unmistakably their own. 

Rusty and Ingrid trained at Massachusetts College of Art and Design in Boston, and have lived in Gloucester for the past four years, raising their two young children. Rusty is a member of Local Color Artists’ Cooperative at 121 Main Street in Gloucester. Their work can be found at: www.rustyandingrid.com

Thank you!

Rusty

Hi!

This Sunday we’re presenting our second film in the Cape Ann Museum film series at Cape Ann Community Cinema. It is fun a beautifully done piece about… a painting! Great for all ages, but especially those who speak French or can read subtitles. I’ve attached the Press Release, a smaller pdf and jpeg. Not sure which works best for you. Hope you had a nice Thanksgiving – now on to Christmas!

Thanks for all that you do for Cape Ann!

Best,

Courtney
