Special Events

When considering subject matter, think about festivals, sporting events, and any place where people gather.
Today was the annual Shipyard Cup Races which is staged just off Ocean Point here in Boothbay.  Sailing vessels of all classes competed for the cup.  A bit too far off shore for me to get a good camera shot, but catching the shapes of the sails just takes a little study.  Not much detail is required.  The painting is as much about the wonderful clouds overhead as it is the boats.
I had great conversations with friends Bob and Nancy  Grant, and a woman named Martha Valentine who recognized my style and knew me by name!

Take a chance and get out where the action is!
