Boat Bouy Collection

       Boat Bouy Collection         oil on linen            8" x 8"       
I wanted to paint using some color today but flowers were not in my head. These boat bouys and their varied shapes and colors got me thinking for sure. I like a red-orange and turquoise color scheme and enjoyed this change. It's surprising how many shapes they have, so seeing a big grouping like this is like walking up to a big abstract painting.

Mary, I love this painting. I love Maine and this reminds me of Monhegan Island. Really nicely done.

I agree. This is a wonderful and fresh change. Love the forms, the color. And yes, the palette. Great job.

You always challenge yourself with different subject matter. This is a wonderful painting and it inspires me to see it.
