Dock 31

"Dock 31" (6x8") Oil on wood panel. This is one of a small series of paintings I'm working on for The Art House Gallery in Brewster, Mass. There are five 6x8" paintings in all.I'll post the rest soon. This one is "Dock 31"..simple as that. It's a cool looking boat with beautiful lines docked on dock #31 in Camden Maine harbor. To me, this is just a painting of a finely crafted vessel. Not different really than a still life painter who carefully chooses his subjects simply for the beauty he sees in them..or a figure painter who chooses a specific model or poses her in a particular manner because he admires the way the shapes, curves, lines and light create a unique design.

Your boat pieces are really outstanding! I especially love Scotty's Cove--the addition of the marsh grass is dynamite and reminiscent of your hero and mine, A. Wyeth. Stay in touch!
