"Perkins Cove Dinghy"


Hi all, I'm back from vacation and finally in front of the easel again. One of the first things I did when I got home was drive up north to Ogunquit, Maine to Perkins cove where I did some plein air painting and took lots of photographs. It's great to be back on the seacoast. This is an 8x6" oil painting on wood panel of a "Perkins cove dingy".

Hi abbie Hi Todd!
Very nice dinghy.... and really, I would like to see these in person. Ring me up next week and make an appointment! These are very nice online, so I am sure they are even nicer in person!
All my contact info is at the blog.

i really like that the major element of the painting is the knot tying the boat and not the boat itself (kind of some funny wordplay there). there's a nice interplay between this very squiggly texture (the knot) and the stolid squareness of the boat. nicely done.

I thought I was the only one who got that about the knot..good eye Christopher. Thanks all for your nice comments.

Best,
Todd
