Aground                           #180501  oil on canvas   18X24  (2018)    

From a series of photographs I took in 1979, during a trip along the Maine coast.  She was just an old, well used boat, resting aground on the beach.  The sky was overcast but very bright and the cast shadows were very soft.The sunlight on the bow  caught my attention and I took several photos from a few different angles. When I found the photos in an old album, I thought they could be the basis for  a pretty nice painting.  The painting hangs in our den and I like looking at it often. It has a very peaceful feel to it.
