The Miss Kim is always docked just in front of the Down Under (the bar and grill underneath the Stingaree). I've painted her once before at dusk. Here I've tried to capture the incredible reflection she casts at sunset. I worked on this off and on for several days this week and finished this afternoon. It's always a challenge balancing the hard edges and details necessary to be convincing with a subject like this with my love of lose paint and vibrant color, but I'm pretty happy with the result. It makes want to sit back with a cold Shiner Bock and enjoy the gentle breeze of a sunset at the coast.
