Abstracting boats, marinas and coastal sitings informs this series. I gather my material while out sailing and work on them in my studio.
By the Sea, By the Sea
acrylic on canvas
36" x 36"
I live by the sea in a hillside town. The houses perch on the hill and from the water they are all together as one big unit. This is how it looks from the sea. Well my version anyways and you know I love to invent shapes. This painting allows one to get lost in the many lines and shapes and discover new places to dream about. Four men in a boat are plying the waters below with the docks and ladders leading to the water. The sun shines brightly over the scene. It's a fun place to be and brings memories of travel and favourite places lived or visited.
