Sailing the Strait

Another ​plein air painting from my summer roadtrip,
 this time on the Olympic Penn.
 I was enchanted by the lovely purples and blues of this scene,
and the placid waters of the Juan de Fuca Strait,
where a  sailboat and its reflection 
silently moved into the mists off Vancouver Island, Canada.
6" x 8" oil on canvas panel
available on DPW auction
Below is a photo of the scene painted. My computer tends to
over do the blues so the purples and bluegreens aren't as obvious
in the photo.
