  • BEYOND THE FRAME: Musings on a Wave

    In Frank Vining Smith's ca 1900-40 oil painting, The Wild Gulf Stream,  we explore the artist's muse and his inspirations through his depiction of a singular large wave that fills his grand canvas. His life led him to the waters' edge time and time again, and in this blog we explore what it is about a wave that calls us, too.

  • BEYOND THE FRAME: Connection

    In our constantly connected world of endless emails, and spam calls, it can be easy to take infrastructure and the concept of connection for granted - but what if we didn't have that? What if your means of connecting with family or getting mail or groceries was a ferry?

    Nothing says winter visually like a blanketed sky and soft lighting. The scene is captured in muted colors except for a child in a bright blue jacket.
