"Patience" by Carol Thompson


"This graceful fishing boat, the 'Patience', is doing her job in the Columbia River at Astoria, Oregon.

Artist comment:  "Pastel on Canson Mi-Teintes paper is my choice to paint boats.  For 'Patience', my husband, Ed photographed her in action with our Nikon (500mm lens) camera.  This scene is expecially pleasing because of the way the 'wings' extend and the upper rigging reaches up to form a 'flying' triangle, which is a perfect counterpoint to the rounded form of the craft.  As usual the Washington weather is overcast and almost everything is gray.  That gives a perfect foil for the colors of the 'Patience'.  Once the background was painted (and all those ripples completed), I concentrated on the "Patience'.  She is gorgeous!  I like the white and blue and black.  The red 'dot' of the life preserver is a great accent!  The final touches were the windows, crates, and a hint of rust on the side.
