There must be at least two boats in Maine for everyone that lives there. They are all over the place, in all kinds of shapes, colors and purposes....and with all sorts of personalities. They would make a good Pixar movie.
It's hard to pass up painting a red one sitting against the intense blues of a Fall sky reflected in the water.....all those color possibilities....all those excuses to push and pull the hues and find color vibrancy and pattern. Working boats are a pleasure just to watch bob around in the water.
My classes begin later this month at the Winslow Art Center. While I frequently revamp what I teach, this year it is a total makeover and I'm going to try to move into areas of instruction I haven't tried before, but I think will help those in the course move more quickly into their own expression and style. It will be pretty much all day on Tuesdays for seven weeks and will be four (yes, four) hours of instruction followed by open studio. Come if you can. We always have a good time.
