"Moored"

This painting is part of a small works show at the Peninsula Library in Gig Harbor. I wanted to paint something with a bit of local flavor for this show, and this little dinghy seemed just right. It will be on display until March 30.

Wow.... I'm in awe of all that detail on such a tiny board. I envy your talent.

Thanks, Sheila! It was fun to paint, but I'm ready to do something bigger now. ;)

That's a great capture of the local flavor! If you'd ever be willing to share any Gig Harbor paintings on my community site (GigHarborUndressed.com...it's G-rated!) I'd love to feature some of them.

Thanks Vern & Dominique! :)

Thank you Matt/GHUndressed! I'm doing the Open Studio Tour this year, so I'm planning to do some GH inspired paintings over the next few months. As long as it is properly attributed and linked back to my blog, you're welcome to use anything you like. Thanks!
