Yarmouth Town Landing, in Yarmouth, Maine is one of my favorite local spots. I love checking out all the boats and dinghies there. Older dinghies – like this one – tend to have a lot of character to them. Interesting bit about this painting is that I’m not actually a boat person (as in I don’t really know much about boats), so I struggled with the details of the oarlock because I realized I really didn’t understand how they worked. Some quick online research – looking at photos of them – cleared that up though. It made me realize that painting can be an educational process in that way.
