Friday Feature: Buy Me Some Peanuts and Cracker Jacks

Each Friday we feature a favorite artist, blogger or project. Please contact us if you know an artist or blogger doing something super creative who you think should be featured here.

Hi there from up here on cloud 9. We're just so honored to be up for a Homie award at Apartment Therapy among so many lovely blogs. And the new blogs I've found to read!? Oh the to-do list is in serious danger of being neglected! Welcome to our new readers, we're so happy to have you.

Now that it's finally Friday again, it's time to introduce you to someone other that us. This week we're really excited to share a piece of art by Buzzy Trusiani, a very cool Californian surfer/lawyer, former sculpture artist for Warner Bros. and Disney Galleries who owns a juice bar in Portland, Maine. I know, pretty cool resume, no? And juice during the Maine winters? This guy is feeding a juice revolution and while the girls juice up a storm behind the counter, Buzzy is in front with the customers, paint brush in hand. Totally different paintbrush than ours.

Recently Buzzy gave us this painting as a wedding gift:

Fenway park in Boston, home of the Red Sox. The painting comes complete with the Citgo and John Hancock signs, but instead of the Volvo and Sports Authority advertisements from the park, Buzzy personalized the billboards with "Feeney" and "Lexi" (my dogs' names).

In the bottom corner, he added two black dogs in the stands wearing red and blue collars:
I love that this painting looks into the park from the perspective of the ledge where I sat during the countless games S and I attended while I was in law school and he lived in Florida. I studied for bar exams on that ledge, which I suppose means I didn't really watch the games so intently nor study so diligently, but do love a game at Fenway. S would fly a small plane to Boston for the weekend and we'd go to as many games as possible, buying last minute standing-room only tickets. This painting brings back great memories for us.


Buzzy's juice bar, the Maine Squeeze, serves as a gallery with his work on constant rotation. If you're ever in the area, you must stop by at 5 1/2 Moulton Street to say hello. Have a smoothie and tell him F&S from Our Little Beehive sent you. And in the meantime stop by and check out Buzzy's new etsy shop.
