Shed at the Dock

On Thursday morning I went back to the dock by the White Cap Fish Market in Islip.
I liked the bit of clutter with the dock behind it. I can always find something there to paint.


  1. I love how the paddles on the foreground tie the two buildings together. Beautiful job, nice details!

  2. Oh wow this is lovely. You really have conveyed the feeling of a busy, slightly quirky and chaotic little place. I just want to go straight in there and poke about!! Actually, a thought just occured to me..... it reminds me of the shed at our allotment, only this is a bit more organized!! Top stuff!!

  3. Busy corner. You have made it very painterly

  4. I've tried painting clutter and alas, I just cannot manage it correctly. My overlapping isn't right. Anyway, I do also love the ship masts in the distance. What a crisp and clean piece that makes me want to walk by the water here.

  5. It's nice to see the other side of the market. Lots to see here! Wonderful painting as always, Joan.

  6. I like seeing all the stuff in front of the shed. As usual, you did a great job.

  7. Hello Joan!
    It seems like forever that I commented on your wonderful paintings! All of your last posts are fantastic! I always expect great art when I check out your blog and I am never disappointed!
    I love this last piece so very much! There seems to be a wonderful emotional element to this painting that makes it so very enjoyable.
    Keep on painting!
