Depot Bay, Oregon

Depot Bay is the smallest Harbor in the world yet offers more painting opportunities than almost any other harbor in Oregon.  The Vistas & Vineyards group spent the morning there yesterday.  A number of us chose to sit in front of the Coast Guard station.  This was exciting because we ended up in front of some firearm practice, and then we lost the boat because they decided to move it under cover because of the rain.  It turns out that Coast Guard boats are not waterproof, at least according to this boat’s crew.  Finally we watched them try to get the boat into the boathouse without first lowering the mast (oops).  They told us we were not supposed to see this.
This is the drawing/painting  I managed to complete.

Really nice. I like the way you compress some of your art.
Spent some time in the Coast Guard so had to come take a look. Mighty glad I did.
