Jim's Boat

I am thrilled about this latest painting, a commission piece.  The boat was white and i love painting white objects because there really is no such thing, giving me artists license to do what ever i want!  I will never forget recently while doing a pastel demonstration at the Columbia Center for the Arts.  I was painting the "white" trunks of aspen trees, using several colors of equal value, when the daughter of a friend of mine explained to her mother that the "color" was actually light reflecting from other objects onto the trunks.  Well quite simply put, her observation blew me away.
