The creation of Mainer was a five year labor of love. The oil painting of  the Heritage Schooner was inspired by the needlepoint chair backs I have enjoyed viewing at the Searsport Marine Museum in Searsport, Maine. I actually crewed on the Heritage for a week. Click For Journal. The pillow is a wool hooked rug pillow created  by a Castine, Maine rug maker and the buoy came from my lobster  family in Stockton Springs.  The lobster claws are from three pound lobsters I buy, dry and clean using ant helpers.  When “cured”, I seal them in boat epoxy.  The large rope comes from local boat yards and found on the beaches I walk from Kittery to Eastport.

Sit on this chair and you will hear the oceans.   More Mainer
