Downtown, Rockland, Maine

Dropped off lots of new work at Carver Hill Gallery today in time for First Friday Art Walk.  Rockland looks very festive and the gallery has beautiful work for gifts to give or to keep!  A very vibrant downtown with small shops, great restaurants and of course the Farnsworth.
