Canoe drawing in progress

I don't know about you, but I think painting at midnight is one of life's finest pleasures. Here's what I'm busy working on. I'm painting this from a photo I took last April when Raph and I went canoeing at the Bieler See. Your thoughts on it so far are very welcome. The background and grass are pretty much done, but the water, trees, boat and benches all need work. there will be some little people having a picnic on the edge of the shore, too, when I'm done. The drawing is 5 x 12 inches. Sorry about the kind of rotten photo.


  1. Niiiice grass! Awfully tiny work...a far cry from some of the huge paintings you have done in the past. Is this another painting for a gift, or one you will be offering for sale?

    I especially like the play of the light across all the scene.


  2. I'm thinking about selling it. I miss doing big pictures (they're easier, in some ways), but I don't really have the time or supplies or space to do them right now.

  3. Well it's no guitar, but not bad... for a girl.

  4. That is very relaxing and beautiful.
