The Red Tug

If you’ve ever been to the Seaport in Mystic Connecticut, then you are sure to remember the cute little red tugboat at the entrance. I’ve been there many times and realized that I never sat down to make a drawing of entrance. Very New England. No frills. A small sign, a red tug and a […]

She Passed By Quietly

I remember seeing the Morgan, even if I didn’t remember her name, when I was a kid. In fact, I have rather strong memories of the Charles W. Morgan and an old souvenir (does anyone use that word anymore—it does seem perfect for a wooden ship though) from a childhood visit. I even realized recently […]

Returning Home

If all goes as planned the Charles W. Morgan will return home next Wednesday after her 38th and most likely last voyage. Sailing into Mystic will mark an amazing moment.

Here is a drawing with watercolor of the Morgan, the crane and the town of Mystic behind it. The history of this town is incredible. This scene is after the heavy mast was erected onto the ship, when the crane was dropping cement weights into the hull as ballast. To see more of my reportage […]

Our home away from home

Newport, Rhode Island has always held a special place in my heart. It’s where my husband and I were married. It’s where we retreat to when time in the city gets hectic. It’s where we’ve built adoring friendships and memories we’ll always treasure. Trinity Church is right in the heart of downtown Newport, a real […]

The Romantic

This is one of my favorite drawings I’ve made this year. Its of a lonely New England musician sitting by himself under a tree playing the recorder and dreaming of adventure. I am intrigued by the idea of adventurers dreaming of home, and those at home dreaming of adventure, and have made a number of […]
