There was a room in which the evidence of nautical cultures was stored and catalogued. Many of the artifacts were considered to be the iconography of myth and legend. Some was thought to be the paraphernalia of a forgotten religion. All of it was eventually destroyed.

My answer is always the same in essence, although its sometimes hard to articulate in clear language. The painting was never for me. It wasn't done for me. It is born out of an impulse to communicate something about a passion, to share a vision, to point others to something that we can celebrate. And when a painting is sold, when someone sees what I saw and shares in that vision, celebrates the colours and shapes and the content with me, I know that I wasn't talking pointlessly to myself. And the financial exchange that takes place is what enables me to do it again and again. I am grateful for the sale, and happy that the communication has been received like good news. And in the slightly weird way that I have of anthropomorphizing things, I'm happy for the painting to have the validated feeling that it is wanted.

Winter is upon us, almost, which means that for me the sitting in the middle of a field and doing a painting thing is going on hold for a few months. Between now and next spring I shall be doing a few local commissions here in and around Chicago, a little design work, some inventing, lots of teaching and some storytelling I dont doubt.American Barns and Boats
