At low tide, when the dinghies are left sitting in the marsh grasses, they look very serene. I have many photos, and someday hope to have painted a lot of them. Each dinghy has its own personality depending on its color, simplicity and location, so you can't have too many paintings of them.
I've been at the studio painting up a "storm" this winter. I took the photo reference for this painting here in Duxbury a few summers ago and finally got around to painting it. I put a pumice ground on my paper first which gives it the texture that you see.
