Last weekend I was over on the coast of Maine, visiting my friend Middy, and she and I went to The Gallery at Widgeon Cove in Harpswell, home and gallery of very gifted artists Condon and Georgeann Kuhl.  Here's a snapshot of the view from their front garden, and another of the pendant made by Condon which I bought. Their website is http://www.widgeoncove.com/

Maine is filled with artists and no wonder...just the scenery alone is an inspiration. On the Kuhls' website you can see a photo of a rainbow over the cove. I was there on a more ordinary dat, though wiht such a view, no day is ordinary.

I loved the birthday tribute! Coincidences are fun, although, I usually have to write mine down to being a twin. This year, my twin sister and I both made ourselves marble cakes for our birthdays without knowing the other one was doing the same thing.

Hi, Lois - I remember Trina and you both speaking at an SCBWI conference in L.A. many years ago. Thanks for celebrating your friendship (and black eyes). Regarding coincidence - that's a tricky thing, isn't it? I had a friend who wrote a multi-Emmy award winning TV movie many years ago, based on his own experiences. One night, he was recounting the true story which was even more incredible than the film. I'm sure I went, "Oh, wow," when he described a certain incident. But he said the network said it was too "unbelievable" and no one would buy it. "But it happened," my friend argued. He still had to change it. Real life is full of amazing coincidences. Somehow they just don't "smell right" in print.

Hi, Betty! Gosh, I had forgotten that SCBWI conference. It would have been 1987 because I was there to receive a Golden Kite Award for "Rabble Starkey." Thinking back, I assumed Trina was there also for a Golden Kite---but I just googled the GK awards and she was a winner in 1988, not 1987.
But I do remember her speaking, and that she said she was growing tired of her own illustrations. She said that often over her last years, and she had turned her attention to fine art and painting. Two months before her death she took me to her separate studio (she did her illustration in a special room in her house)and showed me some of the paintings she was working on. So different!
