WalkingWool partners with Primo Restaurant Rockland

Thank you thank you thank you Primo Restaurant in Rockland ME for inviting WalkingWoolStudio+Gallery to install works from our collection. We are THRILLED to hang a variety of Gallery artists in the first floor dining rooms of the James Beard Foundation award-winning restaurant (celebrating it's 17th season, by the way, no small feat in the restaurant biz). We LOVE how the paintings, photograph, and works on paper compliment each other and the spaces of the historic building at 2 Main Street. We just can't gush enough, apparently!

Happy Mother's Day to my sweet friends . . . something for you from one of Rockland's finest minds.

The courage that my mother had

The courage that my mother had
Went with her, and is with her still:
Rock from New England quarried;
Now granite in a granite hill.

The golden brooch my mother wore
She left behind for me to wear;
I have no thing I treasure more:
Yet, it is something I could spare.

Oh, if instead she'd left to me
The thing she took into the grave!-
That courage like a rock, which she
Has no more need of, and I have.
