What wonderful atmosphere. Could sit and look at this for hours and just 'bob' along with the gentle swell of the water!
Congratulations, a masterpiece!

Yo!.... there Matey!

Worry-free...
Timeless...
Waiting...
Wistful...
Battered...
Faded in appearance-but
Still useful... after all the years!

Wouldn't ye wish yerself a tender on certain hectic and stormy days Matey?

A lovely... simple... but sophisticated gem Todd!

Thanksgiving here this weekend...
Blessings upon ye... and yer crew Laddie!

Warmest regards,
Bruce

Your work is inspiring to me. As a relatively new artist, I look to the 'pros' for their amazing gifts of wisdom and works they share with all. Thank you.

Art Fortune said...

The way you have calculated this reflection is superb. You have brilliantly defined the horizon. The feeling of floating is really captured here. Every detail is beautiful. artist forums

Todd. Every time I look at your wonderful boats, I get such a feeling of calm...of such gentle strength and wisdom. I just want to go aboard each one, take up an oar and paddle away as I listen to what it has to say! What a gift to be able to impart that upon another person through your work! (Pat N.)

Cyndi, Art Fortune and Pat,
Thanks so much, it's all so very warm to hear your praise and I sincerely appreciate it. How lucky we are to take part into something so rewarding, intellectually challenging and fun as painting.
Happy painting to you all.

Todd
