8" x 16" Oil on Gessoboard
New season of sailing for my husband, so I get to paint more sailboats. It was a windy, spectacular, blue day for the first race. It's unusual that the mountains appear to be the same color as the lake, but that's how I saw it. It's an atmosphere thing, I guess. Some days, they appear to be violet, others they are green. An artist I like painted the same scene from his window each day of the year, and not one of them was the same. Before I began painting, I don't think I noticed the subtle changes that occur. So....yet again, another sailboat painting...A new day!
