I took this from one of my own photos – I was captivated by the amazing colors on the water at this time of morning (right before the sun came up over Chebeague Island). Interesting tidbit… I did an acrylic painting of the scene (shown to the right), which I call “Daybreak Over Casco Bay”, but decided to leave the boat out of the scene for that painting. Yet I kept obsessing over doing something with the boat. While I love the tranquility of the scene in the acrylic painting, there’s something compelling about the man in the motorboat slicing through that tranquility.
