I painted this while on vacation in Pass Christian, Mississippi, one of my favorite places in the world. I made the water a little more textural than I care for because I mixed my paint at the beginning of the week and was so relaxed, I didn’t get to painting until the end of the week. By the time I got to it, it had dried and clumped a little, but I powered on through anyway.

I’m liking the tension that’s coming out between the light ultramarine sky and the bright orange fishing cork in the lower right corner of the picture.
