A painting by Andrew Wyeth, who died today.  He and Norman Rockwell kept the art of painting alive in a barbaric age.

A “carry” is a rocky part of a stream where one's canoe needs to be portaged to smoother water.  From the rocks Wyeth looked downstream, towards a bend he couldn't see around.  We can be pretty sure, though, that he's there now, on his way to the sea.
