"The Wizard Mouse," Dean Morrissey's New Children's Book

Greenwich Workshop artist Dean Morrissey's latest children's book will be published in October 2011 by Harper Collins. There will be a book launch at Buttonwood Books in Cohasset, Ma on October 2. The Wizard Mouse is the story of Rollie, the little field mouse who sets off for the Kingdom of Muddmoor where he finds many wonderous creatures, the Wizard of Muddmoor, and eventually he finds a place in the world for himself. Fans of The Ship of Dreams, The Christmas Ship, The Crimson Comet and other Morrissey titles won't be disappointed.

Kirkus Reviews calls The Wizard Mouse "…another well-told, elegantly paced and visually luxurious tale from Morrissey…that shows his artistic mastery."

Solarus the Wizard (aka the Wizard of Muddmoor on the bookjacket) is available as a Masterwork Canvas and as a limited edition print from The Greenwich Workshop, Inc.

Low Inventory Alert: Country Schoolhouse By Morgan Weislting

Morgan Weistling's award-winning Country Schoolhouse, 1879 has entered low inventory status.

“The one-room schoolhouse goes back to the founding of our great country,” says artist Morgan Weistling. “It evolved through the decades but the general idea remained the same. I painted the time period that I know and love best, the post Civil War era. I decided to place the teacher as the focal point, a tribute to all the dedicated teachers that help build this nation.

Country Schoolhouse, 1879 received the David P. Usher Patron's Choice Award at the Masters of the American West Exhibition and Sale in 2010.Morgan Weistling's Country Schoolhouse

Back Up and Running Post Hurricane Irene

Just a quick note to let you know that from Sunday to late Tuesday of this week, our office in Seymour was without power. Everyone here is fine, though most of us still do not have power in our homes. We are slightly less groomed, but that is the worst of it.

Our phones and e-mails are working again. We would ask that any communications you attempted to make with us for the past few days be repeated. Our phones were not taking messages, and any one that tried to call received a busy signal. Our fax machine was not working either.

It appears that a good number of the e-mails sent to us came through, but we would suggest that you resend them as some may have bounced back.

We are here and available. We will be making calls to you, but again, if there is anything that you need put in process at this time, please call or e-mail. Thank you for your patience!
