(5x7 sheet)

In the 1880s Winslow homer made a few little ink sketches of people in rowboats; I copied the drawings and added color.

Sunday we went fishing (yes, I broke my resolve to stay home all weekend--Peter and the sunny weather were too persuasive for me!)and, at the mouth of the Cape May inlet, I saw two men fishing in a small dory--they had a motor, not oars--but they still looked right out of Gloucester!

Oh, these figures in boats are to die for, Laura. So simple but wonderfully done. Sounds like your trip out onto the water did you a world of good, I think.

Hi Laura,

These are beautiful -- light and airy--exactly the way boats look on water. Lovely.

Take care,

Barbara

At first glance in the thumbnail I thought this was the DSFDF challenge! These are so lovely - the silvery colours and the drawing of the figures are so clean. Love them!

Wonderful, especially the bottom one. The colors are lovely.
