Reflecting on St. Brendan

Saturday dawned under clear skies and the sun was warm on my back. Standing "on the dock of the bay" was more of a choice of comfort than a choice for composition. I guess that I was still chilled from Friday's cold front.

I decided on an unusual subject that focussed on the Rockport granite and the reflection of St. Brendan's Catholic Church and the Queen of Peace. My goal was to capture the morning colours and the motion in both the water and the rocks. Rocks do move...  I also wanted to feel the sun on my back... The titles for paintings often reveal themselves during the painting process and I enjoy a bit of humour even if they are puny.
