“Coming and Going”

I have been working on painting boats lately in preparation for a fun painting trip I have planned to the Forgotten Coast of Florida in May. I am traveling there and will be there for 10 days to paint and observe the invited artists to the 2012 Forgotten Coast Plein Air Event. I am so looking forward to seeing some of my favorite artists paint there and meeting some that I have admired their work for a long time! It will be a great experience for me and that area offers so many great and inspiring places to paint.

Above is from a reference photo from my mentor, Lori Putnam, and I felt like “Coming and Going” describes a lot about this painting and also the way I have been traveling lately!

    This is such a beautiful painting–everything about it is painted so well.

    What a nice impression of the moment. I don’t know why I gravitate to ships and boats…especially sailboats. I suppose it’s the corresponding thoughts about escaping the hum drum and heading out to sea for some adventures.

    I frequently paint harbor scenes in oil. Just love the work, denise! GG!
