Home Port

I had been observing this boat when it was tied up across from us for several weeks. When I saw this couple heading to another slip, I had to take this picture. The water was like glass! I will be submitting this one to the Valley Art Gallery in Walnut Creek in a few weeks. I am probably going to frame it using John Annesley's floater frames. I ordered 2 not too long ago and was impressed by the quality.

  7. This proves it is true that if you paint something you know and love - you get a great painting. I love the richness and feeling of the light you captured.
