The Drum Point, Portsmouth, NH

I love the Portsmouth tugs.  Whenever I am in Portsmouth, I check on what they are up to.  I have often been able to sit in a cafe by the water and watch them work in the river.  This painting was from a beautiful, sunny day when they were resting, snugged up together next to the dock.  The Drum Point was built in 1968 in Oyster Bay, NY and started out working in Baltimore, MD, before coming up north to work the Piscataqua River in Portsmouth, NH.

Sailboat - "Rippled Reflection"

16x20 acrylic on stretched canvas
I chose to paint this sailboat because I loved the way the lines of the hull drew up to the stem and then reflected in the ripples of the water.  I took the photo for this painting on a beautiful day last summer, while visiting Ogunquit, Maine.
This painting is available directly through the artist.
