Sailboats are as interesting to paint as they are to sail or just to watch. Their constantly shifting interaction with the wind and the waves offer an endless variety shapes and colors.   The horizontal, stable hull of the boat contrasting with the vertical, fluid motion of the sails makes a very interesting composition. Combine that with the shifting play of light on the almost cloud like sails and sailboat painting becomes almost as fun as sailing them.

Painting Lake Michigan also affords me a beautiful array of clouds, atmosphere and sunsets.
