Is it just me or does it seem like 100 degree temperatures in early June are a bit much?  It does get me our early to ride my bike when there is still a breeze.  I loved painting this boat today and I imagined there was a soft breeze blowing and the beauty of the marshes were magnificent like when I first saw this boat!  I also loved the seafood I enjoyed thanks to the hard work of these boats and the fisherman who work them each day.  
I really enjoyed working on a larger painting which I did in two sessions.  If you would like to see the original block in above...just scroll down!  Hope you have a wonderful day and thank you so much for checking in on me.  I am still working on putting my first painting demonstration on here and youtube but have been having technical difficulties.  :-(  Also, I am a bit late on my newsletter but had sent out an email saying that I am doing a 20% off discount for my subscribers and collectors.  You just have to send me an email if you fall into these catagories!  I will still be doing my drawing for a free painting for the month of May.  Please keep checking back!

Yes, it is hot! And it is just going to get hotter.

Love your boat! Great composition and your blues are beautiful.

Wow- really like this boat! REminds me of when we lived in Charleston (way before hurricane Hugo). We'd go over to this little dockside restaurant in Mt. Pleasant & get boiled shrimp, that had just been in the water just before we got there. A couple shrimp boats would be up at the docks. Don't know that it survived Hugo.
