Here I am this past weekend sailing the world’s best boat… my 74-year-old Herreshoff 12 1/2. Nothing better in the world.

It’s summer in Maine, and when I’m not painting I’m sailing. Somebody once said, “if two sailboats are headed in the same direction, they are by definition racing”. So when Steve Bailey took Jamie and Phyllis Wyeth’s H12 out for some exercise, well….
So you thought all I could paint was boats, huh? Thanks to the encouragement of my mentor Ron Frontin, I’m stretching my metaphorical legs into all sorts of new subject matter. If you think it’s easy to catch the way a silver bowl, devoid of its own color, reflects everything around it, think again.
