Piece description from the artist
I love the texture and color variations in this boat painting! What started out as an attempt to bring sparkle to water turned into a total palette knife painting—from soft pastels to rich cerulean blues and greens. And then that pop of orange-red of the boat and it’s reflection.
Having this boat untethered to shore reminds me that sometimes life can take us to unexpected places. The wind is the captain here.
