Main Pier, Sherwood Forest,MD

This was painted at the end of the day in late September between 3:30 and 5pm. The sun is backlighting the peninsula and the wind has kicked up a froth and taken all reflection away. It was a very satisfying day. In all the years of drawing and painting down here this is my first of the pier. I like how it juts out into the river in straight geometric shapes counterbalanced by (or even nestled in) the arm of the magnificent peninsula. One more site visit should finish it. 10x22in. Oil on panel

West Annapolis Artworks and Fine Framing

West Annapolis is a bright cheerful gallery space on a street filled with antique stores, coffeshops and boutiques away from the madding crouds of Main St.
