As the final weekend of Prelude 2021 approaches I’d like to share this rhyming hand-painted Christmas gift created by Kennebunkport artist Louis D. Norton in 1921 for his friends Frederick, Louise and Carol Snow.
Many thanks to James Bruner, author of The Bike Cop detective book series, for reading the rhyme and writing the introduction. Thanks to Emma Stevens for putting it all together.
The Louis D. Norton Exhibit at the Pasco Center will be open from 10-2 this Friday and Saturday. Come say hi and enjoy his beautiful pastels and oils. If you’re interested, I’ll also give you a peek at the archives while you’re here.
