I'm really into painting boats again. I was especially inspired during our visit to the Port Townsend Wooden Boat Festival in September. I took lots of photos there and drew a few sketches. I worked on the painting at my fall painting camp on Samish Island. It seemed daunting when I first began and most of the way through. I almost gave up several times. I powered through and when it was finished, I was satisfied and anxious to start another one.
