Out of my comfort zone

Here's the latest painting finished here at the studio. This one took a long time, meaning I spent several months working on this and others. Also, because I titled this entry as "Out of my comfort zone", I just don't do paintings like this. I didn't want this to slip into a genre of painting that I just don't like.....those paintings of boats on the water you see in galleries located near water. So I hope my brushwork and color have brought it into a better level. The painting was inspired by looking out for the ferry to Madelaine Island in northern Wisconsin. This is the small harbor there.....there were other boats there as well, but I chose this because I liked the light falling on it. It's a 16" x 20" done in oil.
