The Story behind “Mist on the Bay”

This painting was inspired by a man called “Sandals” whose small boat was used by him to go from his homemade boat on the bay to the shore. It was adrift as seen here in my painting but each day when the tide went out it would fall stranded on the mud flats. He was a lonely man, but one with a kind heart.

We lived about a block from the Bay in Baywood Park, California above a small Gallery where I sold my work. Most every day “Sandals” would stroll by and show me his photographs he collected over the years. He asked if I would be interested in painting his tender boat, and so I painted “In the Morning Mist.” “Sandals” died on his boat shortly thereafter and before I could paint his boat.

I think he would have loved the early morning mist and the sun casting its shadow on his tender boat while it lay there, still, in the water. I hope “In the Morning Mist” causes the viewer to pause and see the serenity it exudes. I always choose oils and especially those works requiring the blending of colors to recreate a reflective mood like the water. I paint in the style of Realism because it allows me to “paint what I see.”

All sizes are in “inches” for individual prints that fit the entire opening of a frame.  Each print listing page pertains to that print only.  This Print can be made in these sizes in inches:  4×6,   5×7,   9×12,   11×14,   10×13,   12×16.  I also make this print 3.75×4.75 and add a MAT to fit a frame size of 5×7.   In addition, I make this print 7.75×9.75 and add a MAT to fit a frame size of 11×14.  Pricing for these individual sizes are separate from the ones listed below.  These prices are being configured now.  Another good reason to “follow me” as I hope to be adding daily.  They will include both Watercolor Paper, Canvas and group pricing by choosing different prints by name and number of print.  Look for my Vignettes (parts of the “larger picture” so to speak), like doors, or windows, church crosses, etc., all parts of my Original Oil Paintings.
