Oil  14" x 11"
#3 of 30
$295.00 + $10 s/h
These buoys were hanging in Port Clyde, Maine where we got the ferry to Monhegan Island.  In the summer ferries run from three ports.  In the fall Port Clyde is the only ferry port.  We got to Port Clyde a bit early which allowed us to walk around town.  That didn't take too long as there are only about 4 streets.  These buoys were on a "back" street...ok on "the" back street on the side of a an old weathered house with just a bit of sun shining on them.  I knew that I was going to paint buoys and took lots of pictures of them.  I took lots of pictures of everything New England-y!

This title is dedicated to Deniece Williams.  "Let's Hear It For The Boy" was the 2nd number 1 song for her and appeared on the soundtrack to the 1984 movie Footloose.  It climbed to #1 on the US Billboard Hot 100 as well as being nominated for an Academy Award for Best Song.
