  1. These images are very fine, maedez. We used to live up the coast from Winslow Homer’s compound on Prout’s Neck in Maine. He and John Singer Sargent were masters of watercolor; Homer was darker in his imagery, I think. Ava was a salty beauty, so I hear.

    • Lucky you to live so close to Homer’s compound! That sounds delicious. I’m not a huge fan of watercolour, but I love Homer’s work (and JSS’s, too).

      Every account I’ve ever read of of Ava gels with your assessment.
