Painting Of Rowboats




These dories were tied in a row to the dock during a misty dawn on the east coast when they were spotted and photographed by our very observant and talented friend and neighbour, Jamie Smith. Below are Jamie's photo and wonderful original poem. Jamie was very kind to allow me to use his photo as reference for my painting. Taking a little artistic license, I rearranged the dories slightly so that they were not quite so aligned, moved the rope so that it angled off to the left, and I added a little morning sunshine glow and color.

Jamie Smith photo Of Row Boats
By Jamie Smith

The sea is a dream without a dreamer
"Til one ventures from its shore;
And vessels are quite useless
"Til driven on a course.

They who brave life's stormy waters
To mount turbulent waves,
Will sweep through its valleys,
The voyage the reward.

The sea is ever changing, flowing, lasting,
So the vessel can't sit empty,
Forlorn without a port.

When a hush hangs o'er the waters
And evening settles nigh,
A ring of dories guards your harbour,
And peace returns once more.
