Really shines on that black. I can feel the calm of the piece. This one won't last long.

Todd Bonita said...

Thanks Frank, for such a peaceful image, it wiped me out..I was exhausted after painting it. I repainted the distant water three times.

Good to hear from you,
be good,
Todd

lovely, poetic series of boats, here, Todd. Bravo!

Pat Meyer said...

This is an exceptional painting especially the shadows on the water. The painting has depth and calm at the same time. Pat

Don Gray said...

I sense a narrative quality to this painting, Todd. He seems to be interacting with someone, perhaps in another boat or ashore. I can almost hear the sound of their voices carrying over these quiet waters. Great light quality--nice job!

Deborah, Pat and Don,

Thanks to you as well, always nice to hear. Regarding the narrative Don mentioned; I enjoy this kind of imagery. It has a quality that suggest a story and mood leaving an open-ended interpretation.
