This is a painting that was inspired by a visit to Valentine creek in Maryland. I was taking photos of the area for some ideas and came upon a boat ramp that just screamed "please take this boat out! It is tired of resting".
I love the water and wanted to tell the boat's story, thus the title "Resting". The additional paintings of boats are boats docked in Annapolis Md. I love to capture the beauty of boat structures with light playing on them.
There is something about zooming in on my subject matter that inspires me.
