This painting might look familiar to those who follow my blog. Last year - actually just about a year ago I did a small painting from this same location. Usually when I'm craving to paint something, I start painting it on a small canvas first and then decide if I want to make it bigger. Before I painted this bigger I shot another photo from that same location (cause I didn't want to paint after the same exact photo).
I love this spot in the city and I really think this wont be the last time I'll paint it. I'd love to paint it during winter time, when everything is covered with snow ...if only I could drag myself out of the house with my camera during those dark winter days - sigh...
So, the other day when I was listening to the news on the radio, they were talking about a ship that was fishing herring (sooo interesting right?), but what do you know, they were actually talking about the same ship that I was painting earlier that day - this bright red ship in the painting called Heimaey-VE-1! And I was like - hey, I know that ship! Don't know if that amused you as much as it amused me at the time, ha!
This Saturday we are having our annual Open Studio! Everyone is welcome! I'll post some more info on that later this week - plus images from the hot from the press new prints I was just making!
