Forest Walk

This is another painting that has a "pathway" as its subject. It reminds me of a walk my Daughter and Grandson and I took to a fishing spot in Wyoming. Happy memories!

Sheltered Harbor

I haven't tackled a boat painting for awhile so when I saw this photo of a sailboat anchored in a beautiful quite harbor, it became my next challenge. I was drawn to the light that silhouettes the boat because of the warm peaceful feeling it gave me. Capturing that light being reflected into the water, from the forest in the background, and the reflected light on the water, from the boat itself, were important elements in this painting for me. I have no idea what class of sailboat this is, but it appears to have been on many exciting voyages.
