Friends, inn guests and neighbors from as close by as Boothbay Harbor, Barters Island and Trevett, to as far away as Rhode Island, Colorado and Florida, gathered in the common rooms at Hodgdon Island Inn to enjoy a dessert and coffee reception hosted by innkeepers, Pamela Byrne Riley and Richard B. Riley. The occasion marked the celebration of their first year anniversary in residence at the beautiful Boothbay, Maine Bed and Breakfast!
The highlight of the reception was the unveiling of an original David Schor painting depicting a summer’s evening at Hodgdon Island Inn with one of the famous pink Maine sunsets reflected in its windows. Pamela and Richard took inspiration from the pinks, blues and gold of these sunsets when decorating the breakfast and sitting rooms as well as the nine unique guestrooms of their lovely three-story Italianate home.
The artist also captured the moment seemingly most appreciated by past guests of the inn: when Pamela and Richard step out of the front door to greet guests upon their arrival.
Mr. Schor was on hand to do the honors, as was his wife and muse, Olga. David Schor’s career as internationally known and collected painter and visual artist has spanned three decades. It has been said that David’s work “captures the spirit and the soul of his subject(s)”.
