Miss Otago.

This old trawler has had some bad moments recently. She banged up against rocks in Croiseiles Harbour during a storm, was salvaged, and has ended up here in Nelson, on the beach. She will sail again, but for now is resting up.
I find her rugged trawler hull irresistible, a plein air painter's dream. Today I painted her from her port side, against the sun. This is the second time I've painted her. I'll be back!

15035. "Miss Otago". Oil on panel. 6x8 inches. Sold.
