Reflections III

Pin It
Reflections III, Oil 8" x 6"
This painting is for sale.
I painted this yesterday and I think I will enter this one (as one of three submissions) for the small works art juried competition this weekend. I am not sure why I rarely use red in my paintings when the color is so fantastic in paintings. I need to use it more often! I know that I keep mentioning that I like to paint boats ... but actually ... I like to paint reflections. Not boats, reflections!

That red boat just sings. wonderful feeling and composition and handling of the paint. Inspiring!

Thanks Dori! As I mentioned in my post, I really need to use brighter colors in my paintings. I am working on another one tonight ... keep your fingers crossed ...

WOW! Your composition is strong, your reflections are spot on, the rich bold boat colors are great and the rigging is the eye candy I live for in a good painting! This is so good!

Leslie, I love this painting! I can't believe how good you are! It seems like just yesterday when we were working in Hawaii and you would paint in your room during a break! You are amazing! Louann
