Framed! Typhoon art.

Image
This weekend I had a bit of fun.  I visited the local Michael's and picked up a nice frame for a project I've been working on.  A Cape Dory Typhoon print.   I found the photo online and inverted the colors.  Printed it out on some legal size paper a little bit of trimming and the results a perfectly framed print for our hallway!









Some Music

During the summer at least around here there are a ton of live bands playing.  After Labor day the live bands and out door music pretty much disappears.  So I thought I'd look for some music to listen to.


This band we heard at the Irish music festival and plays a great version of "The Mermaid" featured in the last videos post.

This one sent out to BB's Sun glasses and all the tools I've dropped in the lake over the years.

This one like just like the bands around here doing covers of all kinds of stuff and she sounds good too.

Blizzard Day Two "The Blowout"

Image
It has been blowing here all night shortly after yesterday's post I went and raked the snow off the tarp.  This may have been a big mistake.  This morning it appears that the wind has shredded the front half of my cover.  I'll have to get another tarp here in the next few days and brush off the deck right now no one is going anywhere.  The county, schools, colleges, even the local pizza joint is closed.  The main part of the blizzard is past but now we are in for some serious lake effect snow and wicked cold days. Hopefully these winds will settle down soon the snow drifts are growing pretty quick out there.  Good luck all and stay warm. 

Just for fun here's a link to a Saugatuck Harbor web cam.
