Small Boat Series

Beached Dinghy
4" x 6"
     This dinghy was from reference photo I took years ago.  It was actually on a dock next to a sailboat at a marina.  The beach and water are from memory and imagination... and that's when the words trickled in while I was painting...
"Storm's coming," she said.  But he left anyway, ignoring the static on the radio, the wind, the clouds, the choppy seas.  She watched and waited and in the morning found the dinghy stranded on the beach like an empty shell.  
(It's fiction, folks.  But it could have happened.  An example of reverse illustration, finding the words during, and after the artwork is finished).  If anyone wants to continue writing this episode, email me privately.  Thanks!
