Watercolor (American English) or watercolour (Commonwealth and Ireland), also aquarelle from French, is a painting method in which the paints are made of pigments suspended in a water-soluble vehicle. Fielding starts the process with a photograph from his collection of images from the region.

The Lighthouses of Connecticut

Uncategorized

Sell Art Online

When one thinks of lighthouses, the state of Connecticut is probably not the first to come to mind but there are actually 21 lighthouses on the coastline of little ‘old Connecticut.  Plus there is a new replica at Old Saybrook Point where hurricane Sandy laid waste to the Dock and Dine restaurant and wiped out the previous mini-golf course.  The mini-golf course is back and better than ever with and outstanding looking course full of local landmarks but the old Dock and Dine remains as a empty spot in the parking lot.

Old Saybrook has two lighthouses but unfortunately neither one is very accessible. Saybrook Breakwater (Saybrook Outer) according to the  The Notice of Availability clearly states that the lighthouse can only be reached by boat and that access is via a ladder affixed to the base of the tower.  The other Old Saybrook lighthouse is in the Fenwick neighborhood.  The Lynde Point Lighthouse was automated in 1975, although it continues to be manned to prevent vandalism. The road to the lighthouse is not open to the public, unfortunately. The surrounding neighborhood is quite exclusive and counted the late Katherine Hepburn as one of its residents for many years. Needless to say this wealthy enclave doesn’t not want a bunch of lighthouse fans lollygagging around their links golf course.

The above image by fine art photographer, Edward M. Fielding is a fantasy composite using images taken at Harvey’s Beach and at the replica lighthouse from Saybrook Point.  Unless you have a boat, this is the closest one will get to the lighthouses of Old Saybrook.

Middletown Connecticut Landmark O’Rourke’s Diner

Middletown Connecticut Landmark O'Rourke's Diner

Just released from Edward M. Fielding, fine art photography. O’Rourke’s Diner, black and white photograph of the famous diner that has been the anchor of Middletown, CT’s north end of mainstreet for the past seventy years.

Shown here as a large metal print over a sofa. Metal prints are a modern way to display fine art photography without a mat and frame. The metal print sticks away from the wall about one inch so it creates an interesting shadow.

Click on the image above for a closer look. http://fineartamerica.com/featured/classic-diner-neon-sign-middletown-connecticut-edward-fielding.html

The diner, which is on the National Register of Historic Places, has been in Mr. O’Rourke’s family since the 1940s. He is known not only for his welcoming attitude but also for his cooking and has been lauded in numerous publications for his creativity.

No one knows for sure whether the steamed cheeseburger was invented in Middletown or the neighboring city of Meriden in the early 1920’s. Both lay claim to the distinction. The recipe is pretty much the same in both cities, though: Place a large patty of ground beef on a metal tray, pop it into a breadbox-sized steamer for two minutes. Add aged cheddar cheese to melt as the burger finishes steaming. Serve on a hard roll. The result is not only not soggy but also less greasy than other burgers. A few steamed cheeseburgers have been sighted outside the Meriden-Middletown area, as close as New Haven and as far away as California. Only in central Connecticut, however, are they commonplace.
