Two With Sails
8 X 10 inch Oil Painting on canvas board.
It was a hazy morning when I painted this one at Newport Harbor in Newport Beach. It looks like a peaceful scene doesn’t it? Well, harbors are busy places, especially early in the morning. There were loud boats motoring past, a huge fuel tanker unloading diesel fuel with it’s driver having a very loud conversation on his cell phone nearby and I was witness to a very heated exchange between 3 men that had something to do with a boat, fuel and the fact that one of the guys left his wallet in the car. I wish I was a faster painter, so that I could have captured it all on canvas!
