Eleanor and I are in full swing readying for a 2-person show in St. Augustine, Florida opening November 7. My new work is, for the most part, on steel using oil, transfers, veneers and two-dimensional found objects gathered in boatyards. I am striving to convey moments of sailing... non-objective 'stills frames' that reflect my love for the water world. It is all coming together and a road trip is on the horizon.

Just back from a long weekend on the restored log deck boat F.D Crockett out of the Deltaville Maritime Museum. We attended the Poqouson Seafood Festival and served as committee boat for the annual workboat races. Beautiful weather, great crew and generous hosts. Here's a few photos...

My friend Eddie and I sailed Annie in the Rappahannock Tuesday. It was quite cool and the wind was fresh. We shared a lot about our past times on the water, his plans for his new boat Una, and the possibility of taking her to the Mid-Atlantic Small Craft Festival in a couple of weeks. I'm going in another direction this year but I hope Eddie will be there. They'll love seeing his work.
