A client had contacted me in the winter and told me she had seen a painting I had done of Weeks Yacht Yard for someone. She was interested in having me do one for her to be given to someone as a Christmas gift. Since I enjoy sketching and painting there I readily agreed but told her I couldn't do it at that time because all the boats there were still shrink wrapped. Spring came and went and summer arrived. It took me a while to get around to doing it because I was waiting for nice weather and tolerable temperatures. I ended up doing it over 3 or 4 days because I wanted to work on it at the same time of day so the lighting would be similar. Today I finally delivered it to the client and she was thrilled and is certain that the intended recipient will love it too.
