Powerboats, Macdonald Marine, Hamilton

15x20 oil on board
When painting marine scenes, normally we think of sailboats as being more picturesque, but this row of powerboats catching the evening light was worthy of painting. This scene is from Macdonald Marine in Hamilton Ontario.
The boat on the far right is called "Lady Rachel". I always thought that was a great name.

This is lovely. It reminds me of the harbor I used to visit often when I lived in Michigan.

Super! Love the strong contrast of light and dark. So effective.

Beautiful Catherine. I'm on holiday now, so if I don't comment it's just because the internet is hard to access.

Love your work.

XO Barbara
