Annisquam Yacht Club Moorings

Oil on canvas 11x14
I have to say that I really like painting outdoors and wonder if I should be living where there's less rain. As long as there are clouds, we are set. The tide was running out as I painted. Had to finish before the boats turned to face the other direction. Timing the tide is important to plein air by the sea. It must be even more of a challenge in Maine. Less so in Florida.

After JLW, after FHL, after....

Bent's Landing, Annisquam, MA 12x16 Oil on Linen N/A

The Annisquam River, beyond the granite landing, was quiet that day in late spring. One tugboat went by but I couldn't get it onto the canvas.
Thanks for looking.
