Oh, I don’t know but Picasso certainly came to mind as I watched this mallard contort in the blue waters of the Mystic River. A lovely sight.  Her partner seemed to enjoy, as well, as he watched from closer to shore.

By on the road, I mean walking around my Somerville neighborhood.  Still chilly, but felt good to be out of the house and seeing what spring has to offer.

In New England, spring means flowers but it also means arts festivals galore. The one that I’ve become most connected with is Somerville Open Studios. This year’s official SOS weekend is May 3 + May 4 with studios open across the city and easily accessible by foot and trolley cars.  Several April exhibits are also already up and running.

Maps of different exhibit locations for the main May weekend are available in every Somerville neighborhood.  The mapstands, made by artist Hilary Scott, are quite distinctive and kept regularly stocked by volunteers.

The show is one of the largest of its kind in the U.S.  You can read more about its unique history here. And you can learn more about participating artists via this link.  Each year it is inspiring for me to see how involved the artists are, at every level, in making the show a success for everyone.
