Foggy Cove Dory
Here is one of the paintings I finished over the last month and a half getting ready for my show on lake Winnipesaukee. I've been busy painting and preparing for this show, which will be in three weeks (August 7th, from 5-9p) at The Gallery at Mills Falls in Meredith, NH. I have about fourteen new paintings for the show and maybe another eight small studies. I'll be posting them as I find time..I should really be in my studio right now but I miss posting regularly and wanted to post an update.
This is "Foggy Cove Dory" and is an 11x14" oil painted on a gessoed wood panel. This painting reminds me so much of the great state of Maine and the mysterious mood the coastal region has when the fog rolls in. This particular style of dory also reminds me of Maine. It's a classic fishing dory, the kind they used a hundred years ago to present. The design of this boat is simple and beautiful. I chose this specific angle to not only make the design of the painting work but to also show off the lines of this graceful and rugged vessel.
Thank you for looking..I'll try and post more from this show soon.
All the best.
