SPITFIRE in Canandaigua, NY

After a book-signing in Medina, NY  (and a really fast lunch scarfed down in the car on the NY Thruway), we arrived at the Pat Rini Rohrer Gallery in Canandaigua for a second Saturday event.  This one featured the original SPITFIRE cover painting (which I hadn’t seen before this weekend!).

We signed another 65 books at the Canandaigua event and basked in the beautiful setting.  The gallery has a show on called “Small Works…Small Wonders,”  and I found myself getting lost in the paintings whenever we had a break.  My mom, Spitfire cover artist Gail Smith Schirmer, has a number of paintings in that show through November 3rd.  But there’s one small work in particular that’s gone…

This one came home to Lake Champlain with me.

  1. Thank you, Linda – Comparing me to my mom is just about the best compliment ever. :^)

    If I could have been in two places at once, I would have been at Bear Pond with you this weekend, too. Hope it went well!

  2. Thanks! I think it’s amazingly wonderful, too. I did a blog interview with her a few days ago if you want to read more about how that happened.
