Who could ask for anything more...

Early Morning Light, 5" x 7", oil on canvas panel, © Nancy Van Blaricom

The reference for this little painting is from a photo I took a few years ago.  The boat is sitting peacefully at anchor and the sky was getting lighter.  I'm guessing the owners have property near by and moored the boat here so that they can easily row out and use it when they want to go sailing.

I love painting this kind of scene.  Water, boats and land ... who could ask for anything more.

  5. Nancy, I feel like I have a lot of catching up to do. This painting is really lovely -- so soft and serene. Love how you've painted the trees in the distance. Stunning!

  6. So beautiful and calming, just as you said. I love the feeling that this painting evokes.
