Title: Best Day Ever!

Image size: 24 x 30 in.

Medium: Acrylic on Canvas


This is my latest work on the series about life on the dockside. I called this place Point Kittiwake, an imaginary seaside town named after the gulls with black feet and yellow beaks. They got the name from their call: "kittiwak-aaak-aaak!"

I painted this nautical structure to serve as the main feature. I find white buildings or a marina full of white boats are the most difficult things to paint, as it needs many shades of white and gray to make them look realistic and also distinguish one from the other. Now, to paint a man in white suit in front of the white building, that indeed upped the ante.

Today is turning out to be the best ever! A wonderful sunny weekend spent with Grandpa for brunch at the Yacht Club.

The boys had a blast fishing on the dock. Today is best ever with their biggest catch to date. Even the cat get to have one.

A parade of the catch... the bucket is full and the rest of the fish has to be carried on a pole.

Whoa, a humongous slippery catch of the day! As usual in my paintings, the littlest guy caught the biggest fish. Check out those comfy Crocs, great for wearing on the docks.


I hope you enjoyed this painting and all its details. I love this painting so much I have it hanged in my living room and enjoy viewing it everyday.
Thank you for visiting my blog.
