Battleship Massachusetts WIP

I'm flirting with danger by posting this work in progress. Sometimes it's the kiss of death, but I feel good about this one. It's been in my mind for over a year. Today, I went into the sky around the bridge and worked on firming up the shapes of the buildings and marina on the left. I'm not sure I'm getting what I want for colors but I'm going to keep on it. This is a 12X16, which is large for me.

This is coming along great Mary - and yes, once they all go home again we miss them but we can get things done! I think you are really brave to tackle this one but its shaping up really well so far. I think you are right to take your time with it as it is an ambitious subject.

I love the colours Mary---it feels so nautical which I guess in the circunstances, is a good thing.

And yes, I do know how to speel circumstances.

You are TOO MUCH! I opened your blog, and without even reading the title I said - hey - that's MY Battleship and Bridge! Keep going, don't listen to all the accolades just paint - you're doing great! The composiion is perfect.

I love this painting so far. It is big for you, but keep at it. It is such a recognizable spot it should be a popular painting to reproduce. See I am always looking at things with $$$ in my eyes. Love Auntie

Mary - Thank you for your great comment about my last painting. I love that you think it "rocks"! These bridge paintings do to. Love the colors. You've made a potentially drab subject very atmospheric and beautiful. Well done! You and Mr. Whistler....
