Daily Painters Gallery

Pin It
Oil, Birthday Boat #5
Of the 27 boats I painted in my "marathon", this one was the one that "stuck out" the most. As my younger sister put it "It looks so lonely"! I was tempted so many times to go back and "add" something to the painting. Someone suggested I add oars, another suggested I paint another boat in the background. I finally just decided to leave it alone. Because alone it is ...

A good thing happened today ... I got an email that I was selected to join the Daily Painters Gallery. I haven't quite figured out how to make it all work but I am very excited!

I'm so glad you left it alone - so peaceful by itself. The bit of orange in the buoy anchors it visually as well as physically. Lovely!
