The Sailors Set Sail
Oil on Canvas
The sailors set sail late Sunday morning. I read the Times and lazed around in the heat until afternoon when I dragged myself to the studio to continue the tradition of documenting the start of their voyage to nowhere. Then it was time to go hear Jennifer Rosengarten and Kathi Smith, artists in residence at the Heliker LaHotan Foundation talk about their work. It was so hot, and I was so disenchanted, I almost didn't go. But I hopped on my bike and got there in time to see their wonderful, exuberant paintings and soak in their enthusiasm for being on the island. It was just what I needed to set me straight and back on the road to creative endeavor.
