This is one of my favorite paintings. I was on the Timing Boat in Shilshoal Bay in Seattle. As the boats raced by I tried to sketch and also use my camera. It took a while to get in sync with one boat going down and the other up. My first few tries were either the tip of the sail or just water. The most important of all was trying not to get sick looking through a camera lens. Lesson learned? Keep trying, it's not always what we want in life but you will eventually get something. Just look at this painting, it's going forward and and I feel a mild sense of success when I see it. Going forward is going to be my motto for 2012. What's your?
