Tug Boat in the Harbor
Acrylic on canvas panel
11" x 14"

I have always loved the working boats — freighters, tugboats, lobster boats and ferries. They have character, and they work hard making a living. I liked the sleek look of this tugboat as it sails out of the harbor before a long day at work. I added a stylized skyline to give the appearance of a great city behind the tug as it skims across the water in the early morning. Shades of cool blues and greys contrast with the toasty orange glow of the sky just after sunrise.
