The Quahogger-sold

Oil on panel, 8" x 8"
That's ko-hogger. I've had a plein air group meeting once a week during the summer- amazingly, we haven't been rained out once. I don't always paint while I'm teaching, but this week I arrived at the location early- the ferry dock in Bristol, RI- and got a jump on painting before anyone arrived. The owner of the boat came by and told me I was doing a good job. I was afraid he was planning to take it (the boat) and leave- that's happened to me a number of times- but he didn't.
Email me for the price.

What a simplicity, what a color use what a brushmarks, ... what a painting!

Beautiful brushwork Kathy, and you really captured the feel of a cloudy day!

Kathy, Like this one very much. I am almost certain I painted this boat 5 or 6 years ago..very up close and of the bow only. I gotta find a picture of the painting. When I saw it I knew immediately before reading your description of being in Bristol.

yes, you do really capture the effect. not so easy that greyed water either.
