SETTING SAILS ON A SHARK, WINDY SUNDAY MORNING, CYC

SETTING SAILS ON A SHARK, WINDY SUNDAY MORNING, CYC
There's a looseness to the work on this painting that I like...for half an hour the brush seemed to have all authority.   Plus I loved the image itself, from the first moment I saw my photograph, especially the interplay between the shadowed figure on the sail and the back lit girl pressing her hand against the main. A Shark, for those who have never seen one, is an open deck catamaran made of thin veneers and designed exclusively for racing; it's extraordinarily fast.  Watercolor, 10x14 in.
