Nancy Michaud's Craft Work Accepted at Gift Shop in Colchester, CT

Starting this week, Wild Geese Gift Shop in Colchester, Connecticut will be carrying my hand-made signs. They are country-themed signs, painted with acrylics on wood with hand-carved lettering. They are sealed with an oil-based polyurethane for durability. These charming signs are very affordable ($8.99-$24.99) and one-of a kind. If you happen to be in the Colchester area, Wild Geese is a worthwhile stop - it’s a very lovely shop!

I will post my next collection of signs as soon as they're done (probably in about a month). Also, Wild Geese is located at 191 Broadway Colchester, CT 06415. For directions, go to www.mapquest.com .

This image is titled: "Sad Bear", I painted it this past winter as an homage to my hibernating friends. While I have only seen a wild bear once in person (only briefly while riding in a car), I feel a strong connection to these incredible, intelligent animals. Perhaps I was a bear in a past life. I am obsessed with salmon, and I prefer to eat it raw (mmm...salmon...).
