“After The Race”, this is a small painting, 6″ x 8″, oil on canvas panel. This painting has SOLD.
A not so sunny day, yet a good place to paint. I set up and started working hoping something would happen out in or over the pond. Some Belted Kingfishers went by, but not too close. Then a Great Blue Heron. It thought better about landing near me as I knelt to clean a brush. I had arrived too late for the sailboat race. All sailors and vessels had scattered back to their moorings before I even arrived. Then, as I refocused my gaze upon the far shore, a distant sail appeared from out of the Creek. Maybe the tide and winds were right for sailing down to the Galley, tie up, order an ice-cream and sail back in to the mooring…
