"Second Chances" Original Impressionistic Painting

I think the concept of starting fresh and renewal is a great idea. The ship and its occupants looking for a safe harbor and even a painting will benefit from a new day and fresh eyes... I know for me its difficult to leave a painting alone and just let it simmer. It's not that I'm in a hurry but I guess my enthusiasm takes over.

Sometimes when I'm painting I feel like I'm writing a chapter in a novel and need to see how the chapter ends. Hopefully my art journey is a long novel with twists and turns and I have the opportunity to start fresh each day....


  1. Gorgeous colors! Lovely comparison of painting to writing.

  2. JC, this is a fabulous painting! I just love how you use the purple shade to connect the sea to the sky. Lovely!
