Slow morning ride to HQ
I know, you are here for boat show pics. Go over to Facebook, and weed through the “what concert did you go to as a kid” posts, and you will find some stuff. But here, we are trying to bring art to the show universe and art takes time. Not Art Molly O Art. He is timeless! Anywho, I had my first Car Free Day! Yup, a day with no car, truck or anything with wheels. Just boat to here and there.
Just another day at the office.. ish
The Railway, lunch with Wayne, and entertainment. Gotta say.. I could get used to that ish. Its a romantic concept for sure, but if you need one part, or anything, you are screwed. Unless you need a screw.. I have thousands of them. So sit back, live vicariously through… through.. why would you want to live vicariously through me? Getting up at 3AM, Achy bones, too much work. At least I am healthy-ish and have one sweet Boatress.
I have been working on the Railway Sign.. all the ding dong days
Laying it out on Plywood to be installed over the Office
I used the Ben Moore Cottage Redwood on the base and an old can of Off White Interlux paint for the lettering. Rule lines allow be to reference the art created, and then a white grease pencil sketch. It feels right to go through the zen of painting it. When you do it this way, you “Feel” The letter forms, and why certain things are the way they are. Its actually very spiritual.
Perfect non perfect. Just Perfect
The install. My son up from New Orleans and some of his buddies helped do the hanging. YIKES.
Ya ya, Take your millennial pictures.. Wait? I am taking a picture. YES! I still am hip.. with old hips.. BTW, we need more young people
Alright! BOAT RIDE!
The sign above the office, the place is getting there. I had gone full press for the show.
Boat rides with very hip young people. Oh just not normal young people. But Rock stars. Adam and Lucas from the band Triathlon out of Brooklyn NY, touring all over, Ham the artist and Kelsey, artist, model and future daughter. And the Boatress. THIS is what a 25 Sportsman was designed for, and she is still doing her thing!
Okay.. this happened. It was insane. The boatress was telling Lucas to turn. Yes Back seat driving.
Oh crap! My hat flew off. Lucas was driving. CRAP
Right in his hand. WTH? Not even a shift in anything . He just raised his hand and CATCH! Never seen anything like it. DAMMMM, ROCK STAR COOL.
Friends for years. This is what life is all about. Moments of togetherness. A true timeless moment.
Oh god. Dad! what in the hell are you doing? Love me some strange angle stuff
I see an Album cover image here. Wait, thats right, no more Album covers. Ugh. I see a, see a? happiness.
And today. I am back to work. And taking stuff to the dump. The car free day concept is now done! And I have to pay for it all. STAY TUNED for reports from events. Kent O. Smith will be reporting in from Niagara!
