A Quiet Day

A Quiet Day, 12x9 oil
Painting the boats in a marina can be like a lottery.   The constant fear that your subject matter will basically float away.  Strangely enough, on this amazingly beautiful day, all boats stayed put, at least the ones that I was painting.

I love being around water and boats, with the constant breeze and movement of the water.  It can be a bit mesmerizing at times.  I really had to pay attention while painting this...so much detail!  This was painted at the marina in Bronte on a beautiful June day, a couple of weeks ago.
