The Skiff


6" x 8" oil on canvas on board
$100.00 + $10. s/h

While on the boat in Alaska we traveled to and from the beach, and on short trips each day,  in one of 2 skiffs.  Again, I painted this one from the back of the boat on a drizzly day.  



These totem poles are from the park outside of Ketchican.

Wow! You've been busy!! The NYC trip sounds wonderful...and the paintings are really really cool...you completely got the form that he seems to have concentrated on...they have a lot of "body".
And then, painting from the back of the boat! I love it! These pieces are fabulous too...I love the looseness and the way you put down that paint!

You must be enjoying the looseness of these paintings after the workshop in New York. I love them all!

I am so loving your series on your Alaska trip. This one is so cool; a neat composition and beautiful colors. The reflective surface of the water is perfect!

Pam, I have really been enjoying seeing the paintings from your trip. What an experience, and you are cataloging it so beautifully with your art.

Very powerful little painting! The abstract quality and almost abstract expressionist feel is so very nice.

Karen, Yes! I have been doing a lot the last month. Michael's workshop did really make me think. There is no one way to do anything. Thanks.

Thank you Karen, The NY workshop was very tight and detailed. I do enjoy being a little more loose.

Sherry, Thank you. The water had so many shades of gray and green and then so many more shades of reflections!

Thank you Claire, It was a great trip. Fun for us to spend time w/ our grown son.

Linda, Thank you, When all the colors and values are so similar the piece does become somewhat abstract,
