Finding this marina in Oxford was probably the highlight of my trip to Maryland. There are so many things I’d like to paint there. The two old structures, where they service some of the best looking boats in the world, are painted a deep red, a red often seen on barns, a red that creates a breathtaking backdrop for a harbor scene like this one. The boat that found its way in my painting is just one example of the many fine vessels that can be seen there.
This will be one of my two competition paintings. The photography is not the greatest since the piece is wet and giving off a glare in areas.
