Serene Sailboat Under a Tumultuous Sky, 36×48 acrylic, of a sailboat with the sails down, in calm water and with a tumultuous sky. Spectacular cloudscape!
My daily walks with my dog Arya along the shore inspired me to paint this … well luxurious painting of the sailboat that we would see anchored in the Harbor. I painted it En Plein Aire (outside and in nature) and with an audience. I quite enjoy live painting… especially while traveling. I have mastered packing up my art supplies and wandering until I find the perfect serene place to settle in and paint. This is so meditative for me and the painting, of course, reminds me of the serenity I felt.
My hope and intention are that I bring this feeling to the viewer of this painting. I really enjoy painting sailboats and have many in my collection. Does this one speak to you?
