Afton's Legacy


I painted this piece a couple weeks ago, its a 20x24 and is one of the only "overcast weather" pieces that I let live... Most see the round file.
Quote:"I know for sure that I have an instinct for color, and that it will come to me more and more, that painting is in the very marrow of my bones."(Letter to Theo van Gogh, 3 September 1882) Vincent van Gogh.

Having tried my hand at painting a boat last week and making a poor job of it it's good to see your interpretation of that type of subject. You've given me another great example to study.
