I’m creating a series of black/white line drawings for Red Sox newsletter “Sox Lunch“, found at soxlunch.com (duh).  Designed as snackable Sox news emailed to readership daily by noon, Sox Lunch provides scores stats and all the news you’ll need to own tomorrow’s watercooler conversation (if indeed there are any watercoolers remaining; perhaps you could own tomorrow’s Starbucks’ queue). For you social media mavens seeking a 24×7, 360 degree Sox experience without getting all . . . sweaty . . . there are Sox Lunch Facebook and Twitter pages, the latter providing in-game, inning by inning updates.

A season’s subscription costs $5.00, which works out to about $0.03 cents per game. Gimme a break, skip the queue and that Starbucks’ triple-latte-with-brie and subscribe now, at soxlunch.com.

And, of course, for more black/white Sox caricatures, which are actually quite colorful, visit my CURIOUS PAINTINGS website. Of course.

DETAIL - MUSSEL

Lame word-associations aside, I found this large, old mussel washed up mid-way down Crane Beach in April of ’09. Must’ve been a fair-sized storm, or full moon high tide at least, to have dredged this monster up.  Similar to an earlier piece of seaweed, it’s so ugly it ‘s got to be considered beautiful. Respected, at least, for its age and its scars.

I just hope it didn’t follow me home. Where more CURIOUS PAINTINGS live.

DETAIL - BLUE SHELL ON BROWN BEACH

Summer has made a few feints into New England already this Spring, enabling me to get out onto local Crane Beach to see what’s up. Along with the usual beach remodeling rendered by the winter weather – resulting in my totally and humiliatingly beaching my boat on a sand bar that hadn’t been there the previous season – I was surprised by a bright Blue Shell on Brown Beach. Seeming more tropical than we, and the absolutely frigid local waters, deserved, I saw this as my first invitation to the local party referred to as Summer. 

For more festival remnants, visit my collection of CURIOUS PAINTINGS. You’ll find Laughing ClamshellsRibbon Candy and, of course, Broken Bottles.

I’m happy to note that the ice on the Ipswich River broke some weeks back and things appear to have returned to some liquidity. Hard experience has taught me to expect at least 1 more sneaky winter storm, which will return everything back into a state of icy, mid-January perpetual blackness, but I can hope. I can’t trust New England weather but I can hope.

Amongst all the other warm weather items to be anticipated – Red Sox, lawns with more weeds than grass and old house-painting amongst them – I look forward to adding to my collection of broken bottles, seaweed, laughing clamshells, crabs and beach peanuts.
