I just visited Portsmouth NH. I went up to see my work at the Three Graces Gallery and show Tom around my old stomping ground.The gallery was great. It is full of many wonderful paintings, ceramics and some beautiful wooden tables. I ended up purchasing a little fox assemblage on blocks, so cute.
There are numerous little shops and cafes in Portsmouth. We spent a majority of the day hanging out at Breaking New Grounds sipping cappuccinos. I sketched and nibbled on some Ceres Street bakery Mexican chocolate cookies and Tom nursed his hangover in a dimly lit corner of the cafe. I forgot how early everything closed and ended up missing out on trying on a ring at a hand made craft store. They closed at 4:00! I did find a pile of little treasures. I ended up picking up some antique picture frames and a glass milk bottle.
If you are interested in any of the work at The Three Graces it is available on line as well. They offer FREE SHIPPING! (for a limited time)
