I get press releases for some strange products. This one, however, I love. TheTubmarine, is a new wood-fired hot tub that launched in the UK ;ast month. It apparently heats up within two hours. It’s made from 80% recycled materials, including sustainable wood called Kebony that was developed in Norway, and is 100% recyclable. It seems ideal for New England, right?

Massachusetts-based artist Michele Poirier Mozzone will be showing “Fractured Light,” a series of oil and pastel paintings of figures under water, at Paul Dietrich Gallery at CambridgeSeven in Cambridge, Massachusetts, March 2, 2020 – May 29, 2020.
Poirier-Mozzone’s underwater artworks were inspired by watching her daughter swim in a pool. She was intrigued by the beautiful quality of the light and distortion of the figure. According to an article in Cape Cod Life, Poirier-Mozzone shoots underwater with a GoPro camera to capture inspiration images. She infuses her underwater paintings with color, rather than retaining the predominantly blue tones of the original situtions.
The Taunton-born artist, who attended Emmanuel College in Boston, spends summers in Falmouth and teaches at Rhode Island School of Design’s Continuing Education Program and the Providence Art Club.

This post is too late for you to find the perfect outfit for tonight’s New Year’s Eve party, but still, it’s fun to look at shiny, sparkly, metallic, and sequined party dresses, jumpsuits, and such.
