Rockport Marine is a great place to paint, but it’s a bit busy in the summer with boats getting hauled all over the yard. Once in a while I get lucky enough to paint there on a holiday when things are quiet and I don’t have to worry about getting run over by a truck. The red buildings make a great backdrop for paintings of Rockport, and I’m starting to feel like I should send over some flowers and a case of beers for the owner of this place. He’s certainly made my life better by painting his shop red. I especially like the way all of these warm colors vibrate against the clean blue sky. This one is 18×24″ and was just dropped off at Dowling Walsh Gallery. I have a lot of new work at the gallery so if you’re swinging through Rockland you should stop by and say hi.
