Dark day at the boatyard

                                            12" x16" Oil on linen board
It was a dark and stormy night.  (Homage to Snoopy, who always started his mystery novels with that line).  Actually it was a dark and cloudy day, with the sun occasionally breaking through, giving a foreboding cast to the light.  I started the painting thinking it might become a rainy day scene, and painted quickly, but, the day remained the same with what appeared to be stage lighting on the boat.  I really enjoy painting in boatyards.    Mike
