We recently sold one of Don’s new perpetual calendars to a soon-to-be bride. The idea occurred to us to make these calendars highly available to brides or those searching for a wedding gift. The bride wrote us saying that she loved the calendar and it was a wonderful gift. She intended to use it to write down her new anniversary date because she would only have to write it down once. Unlike other calendars, a perpetual calendar eliminates the need to transfer important dates to new calendars because there are no days of the week–only the month and date. See the sample page below to get a better idea.Sample of perpetual calendar

This is how the perpetual calendar is set up. Never need to change calendars!

These calendars are so wonderful for weddings and other joyous events! You can buy one for a mother who is celebrating her baby’s first birthday. You can give one to just about anyone. Why didn’t we think of it earlier?

Hi, this is Darleen blogging for Donald Verger.

After nearly perishing in the Joplin tornado, Don decided to give back by donating postcards as part of the Joplin Art Project. The Joplin Globe, as well as other publications, mentioned his recover efforts.

One of his “Peace & Hope for Joplin” postcards appeared recently in Time Square, as you can see below.

Stay tuned for more updates with the project. If you would like to help, e-mail Don at info@donaldverger.com

Bass Harbor Head Lighthouse- Acadia National Park

Donald Verger was on his way to Manchester when he heard that up in Acadia, Maine there would be a strong autumn storm with winds whipping up to 50mph. He immediately turned around and made his way to Acadia where the bad weather would provide the opportunity for some beautiful pictures. Now, he’s added this image of Bass Harbor Head Lighthouse into the series of fine art posters. This image was taken in the morning, though it was to be the middle of the storm, a calm morning can be seen as the clouds move in.

Dawn of Peace

This is one of Verger’s signature images, taken at sunrise when it was -30 degrees. The fog is surreal and peaceful as it lifts off the glassy lake. The subtle array of colors in this image make for a stunning scene.

Storm at Nubble Lighthouse

This image was taken during the Patriot’s Day Storm, April ’07. Verger made it to the lighthouse that day, taking thousands of pictures of the raging waves and churning muddy ocean. “This was something extraordinary I don’t expect to see again in my lifetime,” Verger explained while describing the featured image. An entire post about this image is available here.

Rainbow at Portland Head Light

Another image of a colorful rainbow, but of Portland Head Light instead. The dramatic light of sunset make the bold red roof even more rich and vibrant, and the lighthouse looks stunning in the glow.

Nubble Lighthouse- A Bright Beacon

Verger once again captures a serene moment, the clouds appear painted in the light of sunset, and Nubble Lighthouse glows vibrant orange. The intensity and surreal beauty of this image is sure to make the photograph visually rewarding in such a large format, and a favorite of this series.

Lightning Strike- Portland Head Light

This is a great sweeping view of the shore, a fantastic shot of the blue sea. The clouds seem to be racing through, and a bolt of lightning can be scene striking down to earth behind the famous lighthouse. Cool blues and moody lighting look great in this image.

You may have heard of the Lighthouse Depot up in Maine, a prestigious gift shop sporting the largest variety of lighthouse gifts and high-quality merchandise from all around the globe. And now, Donald Verger, is honored to be selling some of his art in this store.

Lighthouses are such a strong, solid, symbol of coastal history and many people love that beauty and symbolism these guardians offer. Often, families and enthusiasts will plan vacations to visit several lighthouses, or just a favorite one which they visit regularly. In 1992, this group began a monthly publication of Lighthouse Digest with 34 paid subscribers, and shortly after, opened their store in Wells. The store has grown over time, two whole floors full of lighthouse gifts, representing many states and 20 countries. And better still… a percentage of all sales goes to various lighthouse preservation groups around the country.

Their website offers hundreds of lighthouse tales, an online catalog, as well as links to other lighthouse sites. Lighthouse lovers can’t miss this!

Enjoy!

After doing some research to find out which photographs are the most viewed and loved, Donald Verger has turned those images into Fine Art Posters. Four photographs, two of Nubble Light house, and two of Portland Head Light have so far been made into the 18×24 posters. Each one has something distinctly beautiful about it. The moments Verger has chosen illustrate the fury and beauty of storms, as well as dramatic light offered by sunsets. The magic Verger can make happen with a camera and a lovely sight can be fully appreciated in these images.
