Tight Reach, Hamilton

8x10 Oil on Board Sold
This sailboat is flying the spinnaker on a tight reach, past the steel mill on race night in Hamilton Harbour.
I would like to thank everyone for your kind and positive comments on my previous post. They are always motivating and inspiring. I will be away for a bit where there is no internet access, but I will make the blog rounds  when I return.

Spectacular job of capturing the evening light! Love that red and white sail and the hint of last light on the bow of the boat.

This was the first painting I had to look at today on the DPO listings. That boat is full of awesome, and demands attention. Love it.
