Barrister's Boat


This boat ended up on the lawyer's farm and was going to be a retirement fixerupper. Cruises were imagined, endless summer days cruising the inner coast, up inlets and down arms, through the straits bliss on the waves. However reality reared up and bit the plan and the boat was scrapped due to aesthetic priorities...it was junking up the garden by the house.

Bink to blow....

Hey Ron, nice new pieces, esp. this one. I won't promise that we'll make it over to the Fern Road Gang art show, but you never know, and good luck with it. Where is Peter Moore off to?

Love the painting - and what is it they say about the best laid plans of mice and men? I can totally relate -

Cool boat. I'm getting more interested in boats now that I see them more then cars here...infact, we almost sank the one I was in yesterday. My feet got soaking wet but we tied up to the dock real quick and saved the food :)

you know I always see faces in your beautiful windows,,no exception here. But when I bink, I see a huge one in the darkest darks of the trees. Very realistic eyes even.
Beautiful work as always, Ron!

Hi,
I ran across your blog, and couldn't wait to show it to my husband. It was and absolute hit with him, as he has such love for old cars, and trucks, and boats. Thanks for sharing. We will check back soon.
