Friend of teh decanter Mike F reminds me that it’s Maritime Monday over at gCaptain, this week featuring a Carnival of N.C. Wyeth Nautical Story Illustrations.  Go on over and take  a dekko.

I know it exposes me as the petty bourgeois middle-brow that I am, but I’ve always loved Wyeth’s work.  Even as a kid I recall being taken by the way he used light and shadow to create those hazy backgrounds of mountain and cloud, and the flow of movement of his figgahs.
