End of the Dock-8x10-SOLD

From my "honey hole" in sneads ferry this afternoon.any fisherman will tell you that they have certain spots that they always catch fish in. they call em honey holes. This spot always produces a painting for me. even if its winter, slightly overcast, and cold, i still find things worthy of a painting at this place, on the New River just down the road from where i live. after decluttering at the house till it got above 50 degrees outside, i was dying to get outside and paint. it feels good to get a room or two straightened up and to have a painting in the wet box. it doesnt take much to make me happy.

Two soul satisfying accomplishments, they are. Clutter Busting and a finished painting.
I love the abstract quality and the light in this one.

thanks mary! there's something in me that likes to crop a scene so tight that it gets kinda abstract. i love painting in marinas and on docks on overcast days, and doing this keeps it interesting.
