"Fanta Sea" by Carol Thompson

"Cruising the Columbia River near Astoria, Oregon, this sleek vessel is someone's 'Fanta Sea' come true.”

Artist comment:  "Boats have long fascinated me. I grew up in the midwest where the great lakes of Superior and Michigan were on my doorstep. In Wisconsin and Minnesota, rivers, lakes and streams dominated the landscape. Of course, boats of all kinds plied these waters. When I began painting, naturally, I painted water craft as part of my reportoire. I still do. This pastel on Canson Mi-Teintes textured paper is a recent addition. I began with a sketch of the composition, then painted the background sky, trees, sand, and water. A few waterfront buildings indicate a presence of people. The 'Fanta Sea' was a delight to render with it's clean lines and straight spars. The gleaming white with aqua blue trim is accented by black. A few rusty reds tucked here and there and, voila!, the 'Fanta Sea' comes to 'life'.
