High Water, Oil, 16x12
We painted these boathouses on a day when the Mississippi was flooding it's banks. But how would you know by our subject matter? The boathouses float on pontoons and and are attached to their moorings with oversized sleeves that allow them to rise and fall with the river. So unless you are a local, you would not know that normally you look down on the roofs from where we were standing. It's ironic that on a day when water was everywhere it should not be, we chose a subject that was barely affected by the flood.
