Without a Paddle
Oil on linen 11" x 14" hardwood frame
One of my favorite kayaking destinations is Torrey Island, a short paddle into Eggemoggin Reach from Center Harbor in Brooklin, Maine. On a hot summer day, I'll haul out and go for a brief, paralytically cold swim. When I was painting this I forgot to put in the paddle and decided it made a much more interesting painting that way.
