I just want to say that all these new "improvements" to this blog are annoying as shit. If an improvement is supposed to make the process more unwieldy, illogical and cumbersome then I suppose they've nailed it, but otherwise, I wish they would stop "improving" things. Its like the guys who "improved" this site used to work for the government or something.
With that said, I'm going to try and access my site and get it to work after several aborted attempts. Below is a painting that I finished in February. It is 48 x 96 and formatted like a triptych altarpiece. I finally was able to photograph it, so here is its maiden voyage in the public realm, as it failed to get into the Spring Show at the Erie Art Museum. Its a rather large and heavy piece, so it is a bit of an operation to move it. Nonetheless, I like the piece and I hope at some point to get it out to be seen.
In unrelated business, here is a turtle that I came across while walking out at the peninsula. I flipped him over to take this picture, righted him and set him on his way. Such beautiful creatures. It's getting close to snapper mating season where you regularly see those armored behemoths cruising the Sand-ridge Trail to make their nests and drop their ping-pong offspring. It's quite a sight to see.
In more unrelated business...I've begun the actual building process for this summer's project on the beach. The photos below show the laying of the foundation. Where it goes from here, I can't say for sure. it will be dependent on a lot of variables, most importantly, the amount of stone I can retrieve from the lake after this winter's storms confiscated it.
