Staying in the Boat and Enjoying the Ride

I made a vessel this year with my Peer Arts Practice Group to represent my creative practice. In honour of the last day of the year, I took my Power Boat to the lake to imagine its launch into 2016 next to the great Lake Huron.

I let it get its feet wet.

I also wanted to see if it could float.

It seems more suited to the imaginings that it inspires on dry land.

So with the power of imagination propelling me forward I will stay in this boat, this vessel of my artistic practice, and launch into 2016.

Happy New Year!!

    I am especially excited that you tried it in the water. I like that risk-taking! Maybe I should pour some champagne in my Fish Horse Boat.

      Yes, had to try it. It took on a lot of water but inspires me to make a boat meant to float.

      I am imagining that this is a photo of your Fish Horse Boat with champagne in it.
