"Quileute Marina Boats" La Push, marine, fishing boat, painting by Robin Weiss

I was amazed to see the patched up old fishing boats that are still used by the Quileutes to fish out in the open ocean!  Although they are great subjects for painting I would not want to be out to sea in some of these...
8x10 oil on panel.


On another note...so to speak....If you live in our area and have never been to the Knowles Studio where I work...Saturday night would be a good time to do that!  Jazz Canvas is a special event at the studio. A core group of jazz musicians play with a special guest artist while my colleague, Leigh Metteer interprets the music on canvas...At the end of the show the painting is raffled off...It is a fun night you won't want to miss....especially since Kyle Gregory is back with us again from Verona Italy!

So many great shapes to paint in the boats! Lovely palette.

Thank you Dottie! It is hard to simplify all that stuff!
