Beacon Marine Basin
This is a different view of the crowded boats next to the Beacon Marine Basin in Gloucester on a sunny day. It's a 12x16 oil on panel.
When I was painting near the North Shore Arts Association last week, several people visited me during the week to see what I was doing. When I was working on this painting, I could see another painter below to my right working on a large canvas. Later he came by to see what I was up to, and I recognized him from an earlier visit. What I didn't realize then is that I didn't really recognize him until I started looking at Gloucester paintings on the Internet. He was the painter Jeff Weaver, probably the best painter working in Gloucester today, who has done some magnificent paintings of the Beacon Marine Basin.
