Abstract image of a small boat,created on board, Collage with string and cotton net, acrylic paint,gesso. I love sail boats, I set out to paint a small boat side on however I was visualising the piece in a dream and the boat appeared full on and I could see plainly the keel in the water. Using net, the beautiful folds of the fabric fell as they will and I realised that the craft was floundering, that gave me the story. The use of string which I hand coloured creates movement I hope.
