Coastal Getaway    11x14   oil on canvas panel
It was a great summer, and I had a lot of fun painting to keep up with my gallery in Rockport, Texas  ( Austin Street Gallery ).

This one was one of my favorites.  Every now and then something just jumps out and says, "Paint me!"  I was attracted to these two boats in morning sun against the shadow of the harbor building where they wait to make their getaway out onto the Gulf of Mexico.  Everything needed to make a fun design was right there  waiting to be arranged.

The colors throughout are a play on the harmony and contrasts of the primary red and blue of the boat hulls.
