This little painting was done @ Mackerel Cove in Jamestown, RI. It's such a lovely spot for swimming, kayaking, and just reading on the beach. I saw this beautiful wooden boat that my father would have loved, and it reminded me of the Parkit.

Here's a watercolor I did of David while he was absorbed in the French Connection. He's wearing his Zeke's Creek t shirt, and has grown a nice little beard this summer. We're house sitting for Marisa & Jay, and taking care of their very sweet Labs. David has gotten us all into the Lord of the Rings while we're here....of course, I haven't read the books, so I'm very out of the loop. Everyone has to fill me in, but they don't seem to mind at all. They're wonderful movies!!!
I did this one of Ray in at Marisa & Jay's house. He was playing MVP Baseball 2004, and was so focused that I was able to sit and paint him for about an hour. We're having such a nice time going to the beach, and driving across the bridge to Newport. Yesterday David and the boys went sailing, and I walked around Thames Street in Newport. We just LOVE it here! David and Brian are working hard on the Katie N, trying to get her ready for Narragansett Bay. Tess, Zelda, & Edward were here for a few days last week, hanging out with Emmet & David & Ray. Before that, the cousins spent a few days at the Jersey Shore, in lovely Beach Haven. Cousin fun!
