Pulling in the Line

The sea has pulled out, leaving the boats in the harbor high and dry. The fisherman is pulling up the moorage line that has been buried in the sand as the water receded. Dry sand mixed with wet sand and standing water made this scene especially interesting to paint.

Statue on the Square

I am so inspired by the Island of Jersey! I loved the feel of this plaza scene, with some people sitting and chatting in the sunshine while other shoppers bustled by, and the modernistic statue adding its flair. It has an energy that feels very French, or as I imagine French energy would feel. :)

Above the Jersey Shore

No, not that Jersey Shore--a Channel Island off the coast of France, where the Virtual Paintout has trekked to this month. What a gorgeous island it is! If I can only scrounge the time, I hope to paint several scenes there before the month is over.
