Fort Morgan 1 2013

14″ W X 24″ T X 4 ” D  Mixed  Media Canvas, bolts, lobster claws, mussel shells, rescued rope, bait bag, brads

My son, Morgan’s fort has withstood the test of  sea, wind, snow, ice and rain for 25 years.  It is currently serving as a beach shack to inspire reverie on a hot summer day and protection from biting insects on a misty moonlit night.

This small painting records the beach and Fort Morgan and a three pound lobster feast.

Gypsie started his life as my son, Morgan’s, Wonder Horse in 1989. We are not  sure of the exact date of his birth but he lived quietly but comfortably in the attic of Chateau Mer  in Sandy Point, Maine until June of 2010.  In an attic purge, Barbara was ready to put Morgan’s Wonder Horse beside the road (where items instantly move to their next life) but talk about a “power object”, the foundation of my art work in the new millennium, the memories, the questions.  How many times did the small Morgan rock on Gypsie? What were his memories?  I know I had mine. The squeak, squeak , squeak  was a comfort.  I knew where he WAS at THAT particular moment.

He lived in the garage, taking on the persona of Sea, See, C Horse for the next three years.
