BEHOLD! THE MOST FEARSOME OF NAVY VESSELS. This was the most ADORABLE little shop I’ve ever seen. Went to the east coast for the first time ever last weekend, and it was pretty dope: had Amazing Pizza, the most amazing clam chowder, and saw lots and lots of historic stuff. This boat though... I about stole it from the Navy. It would near fit in my pocket!! #boston#charlestownnavyyard#navyship#toyboat#cutiestboatinthebathtub

Our love is like a ship on the ocean
We've been sailing with a cargo full of love and devotion
So I'd like to know where, you got the notion

In September, after a strong emergent interest in moving vehicles and especially ships, we made some toy wooden boats. Children hammered the nails and painted them. I confess I put on the masts/sails but sometimes you just have to move a project along, and they did get to watch me use the drill and sewing needle. Whatever else I say about it, the fact is that they floated valiantly in the duck pond, even after the masts broke. The children developed a way to move them with a special "pusher stick" to make it more fun. "It's not windy enough today". Why is fun so often related to physics? #kineticlearning
This is the last week you can see “Landlocked Childhood” at @slomuseumofart as part of the Brushstrokes show.
It is a special painting for me as it tells the story of my coming home to my coastal life. Stop in and see the show.
I built this boat for my Grandson Henry. The hull was taken from plans for the original Royal yacht Britania. It was scuttled off the Isle of White. The decking and rigging are from my imagination. There are 8 lbs of lead in the keel so its quite heavy for Henry to handle. We have sailed it and will do again.
Thank you so much for all the orders yesterday!! You guys are amazing, and I’m so grateful for all your small shop love ❤️ I got the first batch out today and the remaining should be shipping by Friday 🙌🏼
I hope you all enjoy your new goodies 🌲 🐻
When out and about pleinair painting I get many onlookers, some who apologise for interrupting and some who want to take photos of me in action. TBH the pleasure’s all mine! If I didn’t like people, I wouldn’t set up my easel in crowded places. I love observing families and how they interact with each other. Sometimes when a child is being told off publicly, or being sworn at, I find I get emotionally involved inside and have to stop myself from commenting. I’m also reminded how important it is to have awkward conversations away from anyone else overhearing!
Thankfully it’s mostly happy chat around this boating pond as most people come here to reminisce and re-live their childhood happy days through their grandchildren. On this occasion I met a Laura and her family who were sailing their spotty boat. Her son asked me to paint him on the bench on the left. The little girl in the centre was having fun playing with the parents of her mothers boyfriend They were besotted by her, and who wouldn’t be!
