I have to apologize for not posting in some time. Our household has grown by one, when Jill delivered our new son Alex into the world just over two weeks ago. We're all doing great and having a good time, despite (or because of?) a real lack of sleep here. Still, we've managed to still keep all the balls in the air and I've even had time to slip away for a bit of painting! This image is a regular sight here on the coast of Maine--and perhaps coastlines everywhere--and I'm always amazed to see a boat on the hard like this, when it's so often the thing you're trying to avoid while underway.
