Have wanted to paint these fishing boats on a larger format for some time. This one is 20x20 and it felt good to have the size. This painting is going to The Spring Bull Gallery in Newport where I am the guest artist for August and September. I wanted to bring a new painting in for the opening tomorrow night. I decided to keep the palette limited which helps to quiet the painting and reinforces the solidity of the boats. There is so much information and this was a way to keep the viewer from being overwhelmed. Not so much for the artist!! Happy Labor Day weekend to everyone.
