Re: Spring!

Your painting certainly does say, "Spring is on it's way!" and I get excited about it just looking at it.

Re: Spring!

What a flurry of activity! It's great that you always have something in motion to paint, Dan. It would be nice if the sub would hold still long enough to model for you.

Re: Spring!

Hi David another exciting day at our shore, Dolphin are the bonus
Hi Donna, I once painted a nuclear submarine early in my plein air journey
it was sailing thru a stormy sea pastel, I added it in just a black tower. While I was working a photographer came and set up a large box camera took a few shots then left before the sub came by I think of the pics the photo guys miss when I am out there painting

Super one Dan! I remember the Naval ships in Nanoose bay, the subs were spooky!
