"Fishermen's Break"

18" x 24" Oil On Hardboard

"Fishermen's Break" features a trio of pelicans taking a rest at the ferry landing on Bolivar Peninsula, as a nosy seagull passes overhead.  This piece is shown here in its very early stages.  


Progress Continues

After several hectic weeks that took me away from the easel, I've finally gotten back to work on "Fishermen's Break."  I have finished blocking in all the colors, and have moved on to detail work.
