Watching Boats

Watching Boats

      This painting is my plen air work from this early spring. The view of these dancing trees is what is outside the boat window. The narrative involves some conflict between the condos and the marina below. While people in the painting are watching boats, the boater is painting them. The ship's mast in the back is the entrance to the marina. The folly of the condo people is expressed by the English Ivy and Morning Glories on the slope. One can imagine that there is conflict between the person who owns the heavily flowered balcony and her neighbors. Dorothy, Sailor, and myself are depicted enjoying the pool area. This, if real, would really piss off a few of the condo people. The elitism against boaters amongst some of these condo dwellers is a foul stench indeed. But it did give me the inspiration for a rather pleasant landscape from an unusual angle.
