21"h x 30"w, Oil on Canvas

Larger Image       At Work


This painting is a comission piece by the subject in the middle, Frank Petock. All three of the subject boats and one of the sailboats hidden behind them are, in fact, live-aboards. I particularly like this painting because it tells it\'s own story in the items and condition of the boats. But how about that water, huh? Did I get it? It is a long deep plein-air painting method that results in a deep, yet reflective surface that doesn\'t freeze still, as when done with photo assistance. If I got it right, the water is not still at all. It should move free of its surface, yet still hold together as water. Of course, you be the judge.

Lots of action at
