I’ve had this arched canvas for a while now. I’ve been waiting for an image that I thought might work well within that format. I finally came around to using one of the boats that dot the coast of Capri.
Boat and Bottle
Today’s painting is one of my mason jars. I’ve always admired the skill and craftsmanship of those who can painstakingly and almost magically create ships in a bottle. This is my attempt.
We seem to be in one of those in-between times, trying to get that stalled out engine started, so we can get to where we long to go.
Some seasons are for preparation, for sitting and waiting, and being ready for a chance to hit the high seas.
The town’s slogan is “Montague the Beautiful” and sometimes it lives up to that lauded description.
Hard to resist when one spies a little “Red Boat”.
I know you need to be a bit larger to be considered a ship, but “Boat Ashore” just didn’t seem right.
As our little isle turns white from snow, it would be nice to once again visit the Isle of Capri.
It won’t be long until those at rest on the shore can make their way back to the sea.
Preserved Boat – Throwback Thursday
Today’s acrylic is from a few years ago. It marries my interest in small watercraft, and the aesthetic of the Mason jar.
