watercolor on paper
11 1/2″ x 16 3/4″

This was my second visit to Thomaston Harbor and my second watercolor workshop I attended with David Dewey in August 2004.

As I hung the Alliance Française show in Denver, I suddenly realized that boats are a major theme in my work. I was a little taken aback by this and not so thrilled to see such repetition. But I guess the fact that I grew up in Florida near the ocean and the St. John’s River is why they are so prevalent in my paintings. I have always loved boating and one day hope to sail around the world – on someone else’s boat, of course !

I chose a simple subject matter for this painting and painted it with a limited palette. But there is a lot of vibration with the lights and darks and, as David Dewey says, it has my signature all over it…
