M-C Lamarre's muse is a ballpark - Fenway Park, to be specific...

The Red Sox fan hires herself out to paint replicas of Fenway in unexpected places, from walls in local businesses to hallways in private homes.

Lamarre, from New Bedford, has a goal of painting at least one mural of the Green Monster in every US state (not surprisingly, she's already covered New England).

Tonight (Friday, Jan. 9), the Holyoke Gallery at Harvard University in Cambridge opens "A Pictorial of Fenway Park," a show featuring photographs of Lamarre's works.

After you check it out, you may be inspired to hire her to paint your own place. Wouldn't it be cool to have a big green monster in your bathroom?

There's a reception from 5 to 7 tonight. The show is on display through Feb. 4.

Holyoke Center Arcade, 1350 Mass. Ave., Cambridge

Life and wildlife in Madagascar
For years before I started college, I knew I wanted to spend a semester studying abroad, but I wasn't sure where. By my junior year at Brandeis, I made up my mind to travel somewhere off the beaten path, and, of course, Madagascar is pretty far off the beaten path for someone like me....

Photography apps for your phone
Thinking of ditching your separate camera and moving to just using your phone for all your photos? What apps should you go for? Instagram made headlines recently after being bought by Facebook for $1 billion. What does it include, and what else is out there?...
