March Paintings

DRYDOCK,- the Skipjack Martha Lewis
  16x20in oil on acrylic 

Keene Vally Firetruck 
10x10in oil 

Here are two paintings I finished this weekend. The top is a Skipjack in Havre de Grace, MD pulled out of the water for repairs. It's one of the last workboats on the Chesapeake Bay. I sketched the boat then made an underpainting in acrylic. The acrylic dries fast  and I can then paint over in oils. The second painting is my annual donation the the Keene Valley firedept. Each year since 2009 I have painted the firetruck in different locations for a fundraiser in the summer.   It's nice that they park it somewhere different every year. I don't think they do it for me.
