The Mooring Ball

Max is napping so I have a few minutes to post this oil painting I finished last night. I just started being a stay-at-home dad three and a half days a week so painting and drawing time will be a little more limited. Not complaining, I'm having the time of my life with my little man.

I'm calling this painting "The Mooring Ball". In this quiet boat sitting by the dock, the mooring ball seems like an after thought. (8x10) Oil on Linen canvas mounted on wood panel. This one is off to the the Art house gallery in Brewster.

I hope you are all well. best, Todd

Thanks Mike, William and Ron.

These three guys are extremely talented and I reccomend you click on there names and check out there sights. William Wray is one of the Ren and Stimpy artist but also does amazing oil paintings of gritty landscapes. Michael naples bangs out small daily paintings in oil and inspires me every day. Ron does the same but usually paints watercolors of old cars and jalopies (sp?) Check them out, you wont be sorry.
be good, Todd
