Floating Cobblestones

P1100383small.jpg

These cobblestones floating in Boston’s Fort Point Channel are the work of artist Don Eyles. They are said to mark “Boston’s past and future history”. Maybe so, but for me equating something that looks like a granite pyramid, a floating one no less, with the colonial history of our city is quite a stretch.

As far as I’m concerned the orange buoy in the background gives this image as much punch as does the raft of rocks in front. All this griping however, is not meant to denegrate the artist’s technical skill, which is obvious and considerable.

Bowtie Wearer With Bad Knees I spent my early years in Massachusetts in a little town called Easton. I went to Harvard, served in the Navy as Operations Officer on and LST, founded a construction company and served in the state Legislature as Assistant Minority Leader. However my life really began when I moved to Maine and opened an art gallery. I've been around the fine arts in the commercial art business for over 25 years now and loved (almost) every minute of it. I look at every day is a gift, except when it's very cold outside or I have to go to the dentist.

I'd love to hear from you
