Paddle Art at the Abbe Museum, Maine

The Abbe Museum in Maine apparently held a Paddle Art auction in August of this year as part of its 80th anniversary celebrations. Nearly 2 dozen full sized paddles (all with ottertail style blades) were decorated by local artists. Some were quite over the top with a modern art flair. Below are three that I particularly enjoy - I guess I tend to favour the more traditional types of motifs. Clicking each image will take you to the info page on the museum's site:

David Moses Bridges, Passamaquoddy

Stanley Neptune, Penobscot

Jo "Hugga" Dana, Penobscot
