red boats - 14x11"

I began this one plein air at Tripp's boatyard in Westport and have to finish it when the light ground has set up enough for me to paint the metal thingys that hold the boats up. I found myself laughing out loud when I was considering leaving some of them out for design reasons - I realized that at least indicating them was important or the boats would actually appear to float like some sort of fantasy illustration. It is the last two days before my daughter leaves for Austin so I am helping her get ready (in a limited way) - I will really miss her.
