"Island, Home"

“Island, Home”

“Island, Home”, this is a small painting, 6″ x 8″, oil on canvas panel. This painting has SOLD.

This was a good day to paint by the harbor, no breeze, full sun and in the low 40’s. It was a bad time to paint the Island Home ferry. It stays in port about half an hour, unloading and then loading cars and passengers before heading back to the mainland. I thought I had that much time to paint it in. But, oh no, five minutes later, a freight boat came into the slip in front of me and blocked most of the larger boat. Luckily, in this season, there is little freight and it left soon after arriving. In the few minutes remaining, I finished all the details of the larger vessel…

"The Evening Run"

“The Evening Run”, this is a small painting, 6″x 8″, oil on canvas panel. $550.00 USD

It was mildly sprinkling when I left my studio for this evening’s paint. The northwestern sky looked promising for a break to the leaden gray which had been overhead since yesterday. I wended my way past other potential choices before arriving at the end of West Chop. A distant sail caught my fancy as did the rent sky along the horizon. The ferry and jogger came as I was nearing completion, a gift for one who waits…

“7pm Boat”

"7pm Boat"

“7pm boat”, this is a Small painting, 6″x 8″, oil on canvas panel. This painting has SOLD.

In a South West breeze, this point is a safe place to paint from. A strong wind from any other direction is too much to deal with here. There is always shipping traffic cruising by. This is the Northern most tip of the island and closest point to the shipping lanes…
