The name of this painting was suggested by a student in my watercolor class. I painted it as a study of clouds and waves, matching the palette to the colors used in Near Port Austin to go into a matching used frame. The sailing ships were inserted to add to the narrative of the scene.
Daniel J. Slattery has worked in many mediums, including acrylic, oils, pen and ink, pastels and ink washes. Over the years he has gravitated towards watercolors, partly for their versatility and partly for their portability, which make any pleasant setting a good place to sit and paint for an hour or two.
