"Meeting at the Dock"
21" x 28" - Transparent watercolor on 100% rag paper
I can’t help but think of these boats being organic beings – maybe a family telling a story. There is the old, wise, experienced, slightly tired father figure workboat (I named him Daddy-O) calling together the rambunctious youngsters for a lesson, instruction, or perhaps words of caution. It was fun to contemplate, because the course of the movement was brief, and the movement of the water soon changed, altering the configuration of the rowboats and the mood.
