There are many small boats around Newfoundland and Labrador, all along the coast, not as many as there used to be with the fishery closed, but they can still be found tied up to wharves or rocks, waiting like patient dogs to be taken out.
A sudden wind and rough seas can spell the end for small vessels and this one had the fortune of being moored snug against the sea wall, waiting out the storm. Its bright colour would be easily spotted against the dark grey of a stormy sea.
This is a knife painting, lots of juicy colour and loose strokes. I got covered in paint while doing and had great fun. Its 9" x 12" in oil on canvas panel.
