"Between densely forested hills in a quiet
cove, the morning sun sets a boat aglow. This 'deep harbor' is a
picture perfect setting.”
Artist comment: "I like to paint boats. I love the way the round and curvy lines
are contrasted by the sharp angles of masts and lines. 'Deep Harbor'
is also a painting of the variance between light and dark values.
Textured Canson Mi-Tientes paper accorded me the opportunity to easily
depict the drying nets, the chain link fencing, even minute ripples on
the surface of the water, with merely a broad stroke of the side of a pastel
stick. The overall mood of the scene can be interpreted as 'edgy',
'moody', even 'vagarious'. Yet the high-keyed brightness of the morning
sunshine gives hope for a perfect day.”
