A Harvest Art Story
The story has become more about the begging’s of my Art
A harvest of ideas I would accumulate in the years I spent getting my Bachelor degree.
“To Harvest is to gather… A crop or maybe knowledge”
Experiencing the late summer potato harvest. (Google Aroostook County Maine)
In the 1980’s when I was attending college, I was able to start a new part of my life. A place I had never experience with my cultural Italian traditions being put to the side. I started a new adventure… Hiking, learning, creating Art, fishing camping, singing in the college coffee house, yes I played the guitar.. Past tense HA!
In the 1800 Aroostook, the northern most county in the USA bordered by Canada a little town of 4,000 peeps - University of Maine in Fort Kent
