"Sailboats Near the Shore"

9 x 12
oil on gessoed panel

Met several other artists at White Rock Lake yesterday, a perfect day for plein air painting, 77 degrees and sunny. That's Texas weather for the 40's today!


  1. Great play of bright colored boats against the muted sky and water. This might be crazy but I think the painting could work as an interesting abstract if you just used the top portion above the boats.

  2. I so love seascapes and having that grass in the foreground is fabulous! What a lovely little lake and I would so love to be on one of those skiffs. Wouldn't it be wonderful being lulled to sleep at night with the gentle rocking motion and sound of water lapping? Sigh...

  3. Really nice depth to the painting. So lucky to have a beautiful day to paint outdoors.
