Tuesday 207

painting by Jessica Stammen

Fair Curve_207

My husband tells me that there’s a saying in boat building: “Leave it as long as you can, for as long as you can.” At The Carpenter’s Boat Shop they leave their transoms long until the sides of a vessel are fastened. Then they bend a batten and shape the transom into a fair curve. You can always take it off; it’s hard to put it back on.

*10% of all 207 paintings inspired by work and life around The Carpenter’s Boat Shop will be donated back to support this organization’s students and facilities. Find out more at www.carpentersboatshop.org
