A beautiful day for sailing (and flying!)
Een mooie dag voor het varen (en vleigen)
oil on canvas - 35 x 75 cm
painted on location - Wed 13 May 2015
I found myself on the beach with a windy yet sunny sky to deal with. The parasol came in handy, as it protected me from the continually blasting wind. I showed this work to a fellow painter and he made the following observation: "This is a wonderful marine picture for a seasoned seafarer. I could see it in an elegant frame, hanging just above his collection of pipes." I thought that was an honourable remark, showing respect to the hard work it takes, to get something done, just right.
