Boats

Boats – the signature subject of a great artist. By me.

All of the greatest illustrators drew boats. Howard Pyle, William James Aylward (not Edwin Abbey that I could find…) NC Wyeth…

Story part the second

Met a dude the other day; I found him sitting on the railing of bridge painting, in fact. He was quite bloody good.

Today the two of us sat just off the beach and painted boats of our own. The vessels we painted were not nearly as impressive as the one depicted by these great illustrators, but..well…we had a good time and learned lots.
