Storm on Machias Bay                                        Alkyd

    This painting and , "Caught In The Surge Off Great Wass" were two of a pair of small rough-water paintings I did for the Mystic Maritime Gallery. Later, they were sold separately.
      Recall and imagination are required for such paintings. You cannot do paintings on the spot in such conditions. I try to recall the times I've been fishing on the Gulf Stream during stormy conditions. This is not difficult, as I usually get extremely seasick. However, I still try to observe the water and the effect of hydralics on a boat in such storms. I have always liked storms, but dislike the effect they have on me!
