Here's a cool little boat i saw while trying to find some places to paint.Island Access- 8x10
contact me by email if you're interested in this one
This is from the island of Ocracoke right where the ferrys come in. in fact thats the ferry ramp in the background. i've done this house before and liked it so much i came back. painted it from a different angle this go round.
Have had some wild things happen on this trip. the truck sounds like its about to blow up. i was moving out of the road where i was painting tomorrows blog post and my easel fell in the swampy marsh. lost a palette knife, and my favorite "drawing"brush. this brush started out as a filbert and was scrubbed down to a triangle shape that was great for drawing in the big shapes.
The guy in the truck that made me move just looked at me like "thats what you get for being in the road painting!" i got a little perturbed at him going back and forth, back and forth. but he lives here and i dont, so i had to let it go. painting came out unscathed thank goodness.
Dropped off new paintings to Pea Island Gallery in Salvo and painted around there some. got back to the place i'm staying and little sweet ants had found their way into all my food in the cabinets. now theyre everywhere looking for some more. ants, ants ants. theyre even coming out of my keyboard while i'm typing this! Jeez!
luckily with all this going on the painting is going fine. i'm leaving a day or two early to get old bessie the truck fixed before i have to drive to raleigh to teach saturday. hope i make it to topsail beach without breaking down. its pretty desolate in some places. wish me luck!
