Beached Sailboat

8 x 10 acrylic on paper
I almost chose animals to paint for Dean Haven on our Flying Moleskins site, since he and I both like to paint them. But something, I'm not sure what, made me feel like doing a seaside scene. This summer we were in Port Aransas, Texas and I saw this catamaran on the shoreline. My husband thinks it was either a Hobie 18 or a Nacra. But it reminded me of when he and I were dating and we would go out on his Hobie Cat and oh man, we had so much fun. I wasn't a sailor but he was, and he did all the work and I lounged and got a tan. Not really, I held the rudder sometimes, and when we came about I'd duck the boom and jump to the other side. That's helping, right?

I love it! Great job. I can feel the spray blowing in off the water. Yes - fun companionship and keeping the boat trimmed..always a help, right!

Love it, Camille! Great subject...very serene with the blue tones. I also love all the colors in the "white" sail.

I don't know anything about sailing, so it all sounds like work to me. Very, very nice, always love your paintings!

Camille, I think this is beautiful. I so love the colors, the sense of fresh sea breezes and flying on the wind that comes through this piece! The pieces below that I've not seen are wonderful too! I should be able to get back to my regular blog visiting in early January! I can't wait as I've missed all of you so much!

Camille...I am so very sorry! I thought I had commented on this wonderful painting a looong time ago. Must have sent it and it got lost in the blogosphere.

I love this painting a lot! What a joyous yet relaxing scene! Thank You!
