"Row Versus Wade"

12 x 6"
oil on masonite
sold

This is one of those paintings that I would urge one to see in person - you will see more of the brush strokes, interesting edges and subtleties of color changes. That really can be said for most art.

From Lake Michigan, a ways out from Oak Street Beach in Chicago.

A cheeky title indeed. Nice boat!

Love the treatment of the water. There is a real sense of bouyancy.

Some people don't think titles make a difference, but I disagree!!
I think they can make you look twice and they often (as in this case) make you smile!
Thanks Karin, for making me smile!

The title of this painting is wonderful. Best ever!

Ha! Love the title. Another wonderful painting...I like your small vertical strokes in the water rather than the typical long horizontals.

The sea looks heavy and the boat looks solid. The way they should be. Wonderful how you capture that in paint. Excellent work

I love the subtle shadings on the boat. A very satisfying piece to look at!
