Boating Party


11x14 oil on panel

Ask Edward Montgomery Fine Art about this painting.

I sent some new works to California last week. This painting, featuring Manet's "Boating" was among them. The scene is from the Metropolitan Museum of Art - I wish I had weekly access to it. What amazing work - and architecture - to inspire there.

I'm still working away on gallery paintings but holding back sharing the show pieces until closer to the opening in July. Since I am not painting small "daily painter" works with any regularity, I've decided to drop off the Daily Painter's Gallery. It was a hard decision - I've been with them since I began blogging in 2006! If you find my work on there on occasion and want to follow me regularly, sign up!

Wonderful! Great composition and wonderful colors.

I've stood in front of that Manet twice in the past 7 years - and LOVED it! (He's my favorite of the Impressionists.) It was among several highlights from my Met visits. I could never get enough of those museums in Manhattan... So much art, and so little time...

Hi Robin!.... Love your raw use of colour and your lively brushwork in all of your work!

I especially love your depictions of cafe spaces. They really capture the warmth and ambiance of good dining establishments!

Good Painting!
