CHINA BASIN SERIES with reference photos

These paintings are inspired by the cargo ships anchored off China basin, as well as old rotting docks & fishing boats bleaching in the sun. This location, at the end of Mariposa and Third has been a favorite haunt of mine since the Auto Auction was still across the street from The Ramp. Originally chosen by a plein air painting group out of the Art Explosion which I was a part of--though unfortunately-- was never able to join my friends due to the birth of my daughter. I am naturally drawn to painting boats on the water as I grew up on the Connecticut shore with my father’s sailboat out front.
