                                                     11"x14" Oil on linen panel

This painting was actually titled "At the Fuel Dock", I believe, but when I finished it and leaned it against my french easel, a gust of wind picked it up and blew it off the end of the wharf.  There was only one boat on that side, and when I raced over to see if it was floating-----it had landed, paint side up, on the aft deck of the boat.  I climbed down, retrieved it totally undamaged, and one of the people watching the incident offered to buy it.  Happy ending!   I have had a few similar experiences I will tell you about some time in the future.        Mike
