Raising the Sail, Gary Korlin: a Nantucket dream!

Raising the Sail, Gary Korlin

"As humans we react to color. Everybody reacts to it ...only the artist decides to paint it. The magic of Nantucket is in the way the light reacts with the atmosphere and thus creates the color. " May 27, 2011

Artist in residence, Gary Korlin's works of art are so moving that I could stare at them all day. His website, http://garykorlin.com/  and email  grkorlin@comcast.net. You can see him paint on YouTube!

Head over to Quidley and Co art gallery for more amazing works of art of his and others! Century House artist in residence program is a vision by innkeepers JeanE and Gerry.

A Nantucket room: the geranium before and after

Geranium room is a beautiful corner queen room on the third floor. Cozy, bright, cheery and comfortable. The ultra luxurious mattress and bedding makes for an absolutely needed sleep throughout the night.  Triple sheets, a private bath with a dual shower and Greek tub. The blue soft tones are soothing.  I added a great photo of our wrap-around veranda where you can relax throughout the day!

Check out the major renovation:
