Happy Birthday, Rex!


Today is Rex's birthday, and up until a half hour ago, I was empty-handed. Then I put a sand castle butter yellow cake in the oven and we went to visit our neighboring artist, Kate Leigh Cutler. We came back owning the painting in the picture above, ahead of Katie's new show that really breaks new ground (or water) for her: The Maritime History of the Barnegat Coast. At least in the peek I've seen, her new paintings are haunting, tales of storms and shipwrecks.

The show starts with an opening reception on Sunday, July 27th from 5-8pm, and runs through September 1, 2008, at the New Jersey Museum of Boating (at Johnson Brother's Boat Works) in Bay Head, NJ.

Oh, and the cake didn't turn out so well from a visual perspective, but it's going to taste great.
