Pastel paintings, too

Standing on the dock at Blind Channel Marina was a little less stable a painting spot than I might have liked. Every boat that came by caused the dock to rock and roll. And then the wind came up. You never know what kind of challenges will be there for plein air painting!! Plus, from where I painted, several boaters had good views of my work in progress and they commented as I worked my way through the scene. It was unique. And made me smile.

The last painting was done from land (!!) at Shoal Bay. Still, the dock and water and the folks walking back to their boats let you know, it's another marina scene. Life is good. On a boat or on land.

Good to see you did two..are they large? I bet it WAS unique to be "bobbing" while painting. You did a great job.

Yes, these pastels are 18" X 24" -- nice and large.
