Moving to a new location, it has taken me a while to start assimilating some of what I have seen around me into my paintings. Most mornings, if there looks to be an interesting cloud formation, I will get up just as it is getting light and go down to the nearby dock where I can take in the dawning of the day. This view across the harbor shown here, just as it is getting light is one of the first images that stayed in my mind and one that I really wanted to paint. I saw the three buildings and their reflections in the water as an abstract pattern, and this was the impetus for the painting. It has been some time since I have painting any large buildings such as these so I kept the painting small to start with. But the view does contain plenty of subject matter so I think will work well as a larger painting too. Size is 10" x 8", oil on canvas.
