Tuesday 207: On Guard(rail)

(On)Guard Rail / 4"x 4" / 2015

Now available through Glesason Fine Art

A guardrail protects all the hard work of a boatbuilder. It is the last piece of wood to be fastened onto a Monhegan Skiff, but it will be the first piece to bump, rub, or scrape against a dock or another dinghy once it's launched. The guardrail here is the last and most satisfying task for this new apprentice to finish before the light fades at the end of a full day.

*10% of all 207 paintings inspired by work and life around The Carpenter's Boat Shop will be donated back to support this organization's students and facilities. Find out more here.

Sometimes brushstrokes must be as quick and direct as shots on goal in the chilling afternoon light. Next goal ties.

The first 207 Painting of 2015...a launch!

Today I'm launching the new format my Tuesday 207 Painting sales will take here on my blog in 2015 with...a launching! 

In late November nine apprentice boat builders from The Carpenter's Boat Shop hauled two newly built Monhegan Skiffs to the town landing in Round Pond. Each cedar vessel contained within its fair curves months of work and lots of learning; and each symbolized transition in the lives of those who built them. After the skiffs were hefted from the trucks, the crunch of crushed rock underfoot and the breath of effort filled the air until a gentle slap and then the rhythmic lap of water on wood took over. Each skiff bathed in the magic light of a November evening in Maine, and in the pride and amazement of their newly christened builders.
