"Crowded Dock"


10x8" oil on canvas

What is it with boats? Not everyone is inspired to paint them but I certainly am. In part they make good subjects because they reflect so many interesting shapes. I also associate them with a sense of adventure and an opportunity for solitude. While sailing the San Francisco Bay I've often appreciated all that unoccupied space. The bridges are packed with cars, the city is full of people but the bay and ocean are wide open.
