Half Moon Bay Yacht Harbor - en plein air

'Yacht Harbor Thing'
Oil on Board
9" x 12"
Don't ask me what this is, I don't know. It might be a large buoy or something, all I know is it was an interesting shape with some strong lights and darks and it jumped out at me. That is how painting is - something speaks to me and off I go. By the way, the dirt that is sprinkled around the top edges is one of plein air paintings little 'gifts'. If your painting gets blown off the easel and lands face down - voila - instant texture! However, the good thing about oils is that once the paint is dry I can pretty much just dust those things right off!
