Diane Mannion, Manatee Zone, 6x6 oil
Another gorgeous day on the Intercoastal Waterway near Manasota Key. This sailboater didn't have to slow down too much for the "minimum wake" manatee zone because it was already puttering along nice and slow. For sailboaters especially, it's the journey that counts as much as the destination. No need for high speed, take it easy and enjoy the ride.
Sometimes, I feel the same way about daily paintings... whether it takes an hour or four, the pleasure is in the act of painting. And it's an added bonus if the results look good. If not, well it's just practice for the next one.
