Hard and Soft

What I like about this boat series is the opportunity to paint recognizable images, and also be quite abstract and loose with my approach to laying on paint at the same time.  This boat is the "Melanie Jean" from Perkins Cove in Ogunquit, Maine, but its image is also a means of using a different combination of colors applied variously.  The additional mixture of something 'hard' like a boat, with something 'soft' like water is also appealing to me.  The painting is a 9x12 oil on linen.
