Fire Board 1080Fireboard

In 2015, the Rufus Porter Museum in Bridgton, ME asked me to paint a fire board as a donation to the Museum, to be raffled off as a fundraiser. As the theme of the Museum in 2015 was the genius of Rufus Porter, I chose to paint some of his inventions. It is amazing to think that a man who was born in 1792 designed a dirigible to fly from the East Coast to the West Coast, a horse powered house mover, a horse-powered boat, and sold his patent of a revolving rifle cylinder to Samuel Colt. Also, he was the founder of Scientific American, which is still published today. Today, he is mostly known for his murals which still exist in many homes and buildings in New England. The fire board was presented to the raffle winner on July 24, 2016, at the Museum’s season kickoff event.

Shaker Boxes

IMG_3980-960In early 2016, the Rufus Porter Museum in Bridgeton, ME contacted me to paint another project to be donated as a raffle fundraiser.  We selected a set of nine, oval Shaker boxes which I had on hand and had already painted in traditional milk paint colors.  I painted each box with a theme taken from Rufus Porter murals, such as his inventions, ships, harbor scenes, houses, trees, greenery, soldiers and patchwork fields.  Each box in the set of nine is individually signed, numbered and described.  Raffle tickets may be purchased from the Museum.  For more information regarding Rufus Porter, go to www.rufusportermuseum.org.  It has been a great honor to be associated with the Museum and to have taught several classes there in painting in the Rufus Porter style.
