Two charming etchings by George Holmes, trawlers painted by Albert Strange, and Emerald
Editor Dick Wynne has been busy putting some very nice posts up at the Albert Strange Association website. I’m particularly charmed by George Holmes’ etchings, a painting by Albert Strange himself, and the photo of Emerald. And there’s a nice contemporary piece about the development of the canoe stern to read as well. I’d say it was essential reading!

Ben Crawshaw’s Invisible Workshop always provides a welcome dose of sanity when it’s needed, and his new post yesterday was no exception. In fact, it was better than ever: as I watched his video on YouTube I could feel the breeze and the water, the roll of the boat and the sense of freedom – until it was all over. Then when I had a chance I played it again, and again… Thanks for letting in a little happiness Ben!
