Art Description

Painting: Oil on Wood.

Boats tell a story of their own, but for me painting them creates a story from within. I was inspired to paint this small boat because it reminded me of the bible verse, Matthew 4.19. The boat seemingly is dependent upon his "bow" being stranded in the sand so it would not drift.

It is reminiscent of how Santorini people regard their fellow man as trustworthy. I love the calm it exudes and the colors I chose. I have painted many boats and painting water, especially reflections, as they seem to beg your attention for another look. Although this subject is without reflections, the boat is telling us a story of its own, to rest, reflect and to trust. I always make a suggestion, when I paint the sea and ask "can you feel the mist off the gentle sea air?"

Please see the additional images. The next one shows the canvas stretched and painted over the hand made oak frame. The beveled edge gently takes you from the front of the frame over a two-inch beveled side. You can see a close up of this and how the image starts its perspective from the edge of the frame. All of my frames come ready to hang with coated wire made not to break.

As a "Realist" subjects about the sea, sand, and islands, are interesting and enjoyable to paint
