Moonless Night on the Bay
watercolor  11x14" matted and framed


A watercolor reminescent of Whistler's
series of paintings of habor scenes in
Venice and later London.  The
coastline of Rhode Island where I live
is rimed with little harbors like this one.
On still, foggy nights the boats are
ghostly presences floating at their
moorings.  Sometimes understating a
subject is harder than using a full box
of colors, and can be every bit as
powerful a visual statement. I can look
a long time at a painting like this, and
experiece a stong emotional pull as
well. I hope you enjoy it too.
