It Was a Quiet Week in Lake Woebegone

                              Morning Smoke by the Pool


But we don't live in Lake Woebegone. Been so busy, have had little time to paint nor post. 

First up, a family getaway trip to Sag Harbor for the long holiday weekend. Lazy mornings by the pool,  a day of sunning and fishing at Sagaponack beach and evenings spent teaching our hosts how to play a killer Jamaican "draught". They gradually got the hang of it but no one could beat the King....

Next up, a weekend road trip up Boston-way to pack up our biggest dawta from boarding school -- glad to have all the family together again.

Yeah, man, fambly is evry-TEENG.

Nope, it hasn't been a quiet week in the East Village but still,  the women are strong, the men are good looking and, yes, the children are above average.

You travel a lot, and that's one thing very good for an artist.
