FORREST RODTS....OUR VERY OWN MODERN DAY REMBRANDT.....HOW LUCKY ARE WE??













FORREST RODTS WAS BORN IN 1960. THROUGHOUT HIS CHILDHOOD HE MOVED FREQUENTLY WITH HIS FAMILY, BUT HE ALWAYS SPENT HIS SUMMERS IN NANTUCKET. HE CAN TRACE HIS ANCESTRY TO SOME OF THE EARLIEST SETTLERS ON THE ISLAND OF NANTUCKET. IT IS HERE THAT BECAME THE MOST IMPORTANT INFLUENCE ON HIS PAINTING DURING HIS EARLY YEARS. FORREST IS A SELF TAUGHT ARTIST, WHICH TO ME, MAKES HIS WORKS EVEN THAT MORE UNBELIEVABLE! HOW LUCKY ARE WE HERE IN MARBLEHEAD TO HAVE HAVE HIM LIVING HERE WITH US!  IT IS MY ABSOLUTE PLEASURE TO HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY TO BLOG ABOUT HIM AND ALSO TO BE SO HUMBLED TO CALL HIM A FRIEND!  I STARTED THIS BLOG LAST YEAR KNOWING THAT I AM NOT A VERY GOOD WRITER, BUT I DO HAVE AN EYE FOR WONDERFUL THINGS, THIS IS ONE OF THEM!!

FOR MY OUT OF STATE AND INTERNATIONAL VIEWERS OF MY BLOG.... HIS WORKS CAN BE FOUND AT QUIDLEY & CO ON NANTUCKET AND IN BOSTON, THE GRANARY GALLERY ON MARTHA'S VINEYARD AND THE MUNSON GALLERY IN CHATHAM MA. PLEASE VISIT FORRESTRODTS.COM TO VIEW HIS WEBSITE, OR YOU CAN CONTACT HIM @ RODTS@COMCAST.NET
ENJOY THE PICTURES I HAVE POSTED HERE OF HIS BEAUTIFUL WORKS OF ART!
ENJOY AND FEAST YOUR EYES ON A TRUE MODERN DAY MASTER!

IF I HAD A PHOTOGRAPH OF YOU. IT'S SOMETHING TO REMIND ME.... I WOULDN'T SPEND MY LIFE JUST WISHING.

















I RECENTLY RECEIVED A MOST CHARMING CHRISTMAS CARD FROM A DEAR FRIEND, WHICH FEATURED HER AND HER HUSBAND POKING THEIR HEADS OUT OF THE SHOWER WEARING SANTA HATS. I LAUGHED SO HARD, I ALMOST CRIED...."WOW, I SAID, WHO TOOK THIS PHOTO?" MY FRIEND REPLIED," SHANNON CRONIN."  RIGHT THERE AND THEN, I KNEW I WAS ON TO SOMETHING FABULOUS. SO, I STARTED ASKING QUESTIONS, AND FOUND OUT SHE IS LIVING AND WORKING RIGHT HERE IN THE BOSTON AREA.  THEN, I ASKED WHERE I COULD TAKE A LOOK AT HER WORK? WHICH I DID, AND BECAME QUITE SMITTEN WITH HER PHOTO'S AND HER OUTSTANDING WORK.  I WENT TO HER WEB PAGE AND VIEWED HER WORK AND QUICKLY GOT IN TOUCH WITH HER BECAUSE I JUST HAD TO DO A BLOG ON  HER WORK. I HAVE THOUSANDS OF FRIENDS AND FOLLOWERS WHO ARE ALWAYS ASKING ME FOR A NAME OF A GREAT PHOTOGRAPHER!! NO MATTER WHAT THE OCCASION IS IN OUR LIVES......WE NEED TO CAPTURE THESE MOMENTS IN PHOTOGRAPHS! I AM SO PROUD TO GIVE THIS GIRL A BIG SHOUT OUT. HER WORK REMINDS ME OF GREAT PHOTOGRAPHERS LIKE ANNE GEDDES, ANSEL ADAMS, AND THE GREAT FRENCH PHOTOGRAPHER HENRY CARTIER-BRESSON. HOW LUCKY ARE WE TO HAVE HER RIGHT IN OUR BACKYARD!! SALEM MA IS WHERE SHE IS BASED, BUT SHE WILL WORK ANYWHERE IN EASTERN MA.
