Oceans of Grass
©2011, 20" by 16", Watercolour

I based this painting on a series of photographs that I took in August of 2010 at the West Point of Prince Edward Island while on my honeymoon.

Oceans of Grass in a Frame

"Oceans of Grass" in a Frame that was matted and assembled by the artist.

The sun was just beginning to set, and I was struck by the colours in the grass, and the way the light was striking the boat and the post. I was also intrigued by how far the boat was dragged from the water (the Northumberland Strait is just beyond the grass on the horizon) before it was left to rot. It almost seemed that, at one time, the boat was moored to the old post.

I composed the painting so that the bow of the boat was breaking through the line of the horizon, and added some shadows to the grass to make it seem like the boat was still cleaving the waves, at least in its own dreams.

I added the Kestrel last, knowing that it is a very common bird on that part of the island.
