|Gas Dock 12x12 oil on canvas (sold)|
The theme of one of our Loft Gallery art shows was anything about the town of Occoquan.
The Loft backs up to the Occoquan River & I love reflections in the water so it was easy for me to pick a subject. Once decided, I made a quick trip down to the docks to see what would catch my fancy. Believe it or not they've planted palm trees near the boat ramps. Somehow palm trees & Virginia just don't work for me, but I really liked the gas dock.
I think reflections make paintings interesting. I try to include them whenever I can. Of course a lake or river are the most obvious for adding reflections, but you can add them to still life or put a puddle in some paintings if it works with the composition. I've even added some in my museum paintings. All you need is a shinny floor.
