Ship Wrecked


A funny thing happened on the way home from plein air painting. We were at the Bellport Boat basin. It was one of those days that my artist ADD grabbed hold of me. Long story short, this little 8x10 oil met with a nasty car ride home. My grandson sat on it and wore part of the boats on the seat of his pants.

Had to post something, so this will have to do for now. Must visit my fellow artist. Happy Painting everyone.

  1. Joan, This sounds like something that would happen to me. I've had nightmares about stopping the car suddenly and the wet painting flies forward from the back of the car and hits the back of my head. I finally purchased one of those wet painting carriers. Please note that every time I drop a painting or my palette it invariably always lands face down!

  2. The painting is still wonderful and the story made me smile :) Maybe you can frame your grand-son's pants and you can title "Painting Pants In Plein Air"!!!
