Three Things: The Boat Edition

2014 January 20

Three Things Banner

The only boats floating in Minnesota right now are little plastic ones in bathtubs. Regardless, let’s warm our thoughts and write a few lines about (around, on) a boat. This week, here are three (non-plastic) boats for your writing pleasure.



Alex Colville, Embarkation, 1994. Acrylic polymer emulsion on hardboard. Beaverbrook Art Gallery, Fredericton NB, Canada.



Lori Nix, Red Sky from Some Other Place series, 2001. Photograph.



Mary Cassatt, The Boating Party, 1893-1894. Oil on canvas. National Gallery of Art, Washington, D.C.
