Sailboats by the bridge

Oil on panel, 8" x 8"
I haven't posted for a while because I've been in Florida for the last 10 days. Really nice- in the 80's and sunny every day. Back in Rhode Island now, everything is gray and brown and chilly, if not cold.
This is a painting I did not long before I left, sitting in my car. This bridge connects East Providence, where I live, with Providence. I've painted it a number of times because I love the way the sun hits it both morning and afternoon.

Skiffs- sold

Oil on panel, 6"x6"
I've been taking photos of skiffs over the last few years and the idea of doing a series of paintings of them has lodged in my head. I'm thinking of doing them large- sofa size, as the ads say. Why skiffs? They're humble, unassuming, essential, but used mostly as transport from the beach or dock to the REAL boat. Painted large, you could almost imagine yourself jumping in and gliding away.
