excited to paint

Next in line...boats all lined up...well sort of...they are quite jumbled...but the colors are what attracted me to this scene.  Painting something, whatever it may be, starts with a gut reaction.  A reaction to the contrast of lights and darks, the striking composition, the colors, the emotional connection to the subject..etc..etc.. find that special something that pulls you in and makes you excited to paint! (by the way I was interviewed on blogtalk radio yesterday...here is the link.)

I love both composition and color in this piece. Also, I just like being able to see how you laid the paint.
