Afternoon Sail

Pin It
Afternoon Sail
Oil, 6" x 6" on canvas panel
This painting is sold.

I am having a lot of fun painting boats and using the 27 Birthday Boat paintings for inspiration. I was also thrilled to learn that my paintings also served as an inspiration for a workshop held by Dreama Tolle Perry. Go to her blog Dreama's Day to Day Paintings to see her amazingly creative idea. The post is titled "We're all in the Same Boat". Very clever.
I am amazed at the resources that I have found through my blog. Ever since I finished the 27 boat paintings I have been searching for a reasonably priced 6" x 6" frame. I was looking at Jennifer McChristian's blog the other day and she suggested http://www.kingofframe.com/ and sure enough .... I found the most wonderful frames for $30.00! They have already arrived and they are exactly what I was looking for!

Thanks for the tip about framing. I sometimes look for odd sized frames and this seems to be a good source!

This one is really attractive for the shifts in tone on the color passages like the orange sail and the background sky on the right...love this one!
