Boats on the Bay

Pin It
"Boats on the Bay"
10" x 8", oil on canvas panel.

One of the great things about family reunions is the one on one time with my nieces and nephews. I painted this one with my two nieces nearby. I have just been informed by my niece Lindsay (age 8) that I actually do not paint with a palette knife, rather I paint with "a mini pie cutter". My niece Erin also provided a lot of advice while I was painting and she (and her dad) actually helped me name the painting. I have a good feeling that tomorrow the three of us will each be completing a painting. I can't wait! And I promise to post them all!
I love vacations ...

Gorgeous! And so much fun to paint with interested family. I bet they learned a lot about seeing the world from watching and advising. And teaching always teaches the teacher.

Great job painting with your mini pie cutter. Lovely colors and composition, as always.

Another beauty! I really love all the vertical lines in this. Those few splashes of bright red add so much interest. You're really on a roll.

Great news on all the work coming your way from the blog! (read that a few posts down on yet another fabulous painting.)
