New painting....

Last July, Susan, on her blog, posted a picture of this scene she took in an area near her home in Nova Scotia. (Lucky Susan, no?) I loved the photograph so much, I asked her permission to paint it.....and she said YES. Took me a while to get started, but now, finally, it's done.
(I did move the ship/boat a little for composition purposes.) The paint used is tempera and the size is 29" x 21". I really loved working on it. 
(You can click on it to enlarge it.)
Thanks so much Susan!!!!!!!!

Note: Mr. Downeastdoingstuff photographed it for me. He is improving baby steps at a time. Seems to find it hard to fill his day, now that I, his major source of pathetic entertainment, am back at work. It's very hard to do anything. His mind wants to do things that his body is not ready to do. But he'll get there, right Don??
