Boston Harbor Tall Ships

Wednesday, February 14th, 2024

A perfect snow day yesterday … no work and yes school … gave me the perfect opportunity to finally set up my easel, and I finished three paintings! They had been almost finished for a long time, and just needed to be wrapped up and signed. 

This one is based on a photo I took in Summer 2017, when I was pregnant with our son. Boston was hosting Tall Ships from around the world, and I took advantage of a last minute opportunity to hop on a Boston Harbor cruise after work to tour the incredible ships, just as dusk light hit the beautiful skyline. It was a sweet memory – a rare opportunity to do something beautiful alone and just for me – just before becoming a mama. As with many other paintings (both before and after motherhood), I worked on it on and off over a long time, including not touching it for over a year, and finally finished it up yesterday.

We went to the holiday market in the Seaport district, then to LL Bean and got a new hat, then to the Museum of Science to see the train exhibit again … then we went back to the Museum of Science again a week later!

Took the day off to see the train exhibit at the Museum of Science again! Here’s my post from the same exhibit two years ago (so little!), so excited that this exhibit is back!
