My Last Tug Post...I promise!
This is another daytime version. It's an acrylic on stretched canvas,16"X22". I'm comparing it to my first Tug painting titled "Scuffy" on 8"X16" stretched canvas. I posted it about two months ago. I think I'm getting better each time I paint this Tug boat. Guess practice does make perfect. Why do I keep painting this particular tug boat scene (with variations)? The small one here got sold in my Sacramento Gallery. Another patron of the gallery saw it and also wanted to purchase one. He collects maritime paintings... and... there is a patron of another gallery that carries my work that saw a gyclee print I had made of "Scuffy". They want one! Now I'm getting a little fatigued with the subject matter, but the extra money in my pocket is proving to be the perfect antidote.
