Safe Harbor

Safe Harbor

oil on canvas

This painting is a memory of my visit to the beautiful and historic town of Essex, CT this summer. I walked down to the Connecticut River to see sailboats moored not far from the docks.
Hoping you were in a safe harbor this weekend as hurricane Irene made her way up the coast, disrupted life for many, knocking out power for thousands.
 I have a tip for your hurricane preparedness. There are converters you can purchase for your car (which of course you filled up with gas before the storm) that will recharge your cell phone, camera battery or laptop. It has a usb port and an ac outlet. 
Believe me when your electricity goes out and may be out for days, you will be happy you can go to your car and recharge. 
Here's a link to one available at Best Buy

Beautiful and serene. Really gorgeous reflections and love the pinky peach in the water....well done.

I agree with Kathy - serenity just oozes from this painting - I love it! And you have the best solutions for everything (duck tape really does help most things, particularly fun colored tape!)!!!

Beautiful paintings and hope these boats remained secure during Irene.

Lovely moody blues and good advice too! Thanks, Karen!
