En Plein Air: Backyard Boat Dock (Oil, 9 x 15)
This is the same site on the Caloosahatchee as I painted the small camouflaged boat. I met the the property owner, Mr. Grant and his polite children. Mr, Grant happened to be an artist himself even though he was in eyeglasses business. He was very nice to let me paint there again. The subject of the sketch was the Grants' neighbor's boat dock. When the morning sun shone on it, the bright colorful boat was very eye-catching. Somehow, it reminded me of a kind of orange color hazelnut-shaped candy which people usually give away on Halloween. I don't know the name of it.
