Waiting for the Boat / Rye Harbor

This woman charters deep sea fishing boats. She was waiting for her next customer. I need to take it a bit farther. I will do that tomorrow and repost it.

Great job in capturing the light and gesture of this woman. I really like it!

I love the title on this one. It is really a nice painting. You have captured the 'wait' in the lady. She is content but ready for her next customer. Love the colors too and the light is great.
