Red Roof, White Boat

11x 14
oil on canvas panel

I have found it always pays to keep old  photos.  This painting is based on a photo
I took years ago (can we say about 30!) in Canada on a painting trip
sponsored by University of Maryland.  I aways loved the composition and light on the boat and 
buildings.  It was a joy to paint!

Tropical, Boats in the Yard

     One of my recent goals has been to paint larger, so I have baby-stepped up to a 24x24. This size is not considered large by most galleries, but I love the shape and size.  With my "big girl brush" the larger size (for me) seems to go smoothly and I enjoyed working bigger.  One of artists' jokes when I was in college was "Go big or go home"!
