A new project!

It is always difficult for me to get back in the painting mode after I've not painted for a while so I've decided to work on a little boat project while in New Zealand.  It's a logical project as I live in the waterfront community of Opua, Bay of Islands. Opua is not much more than a little grocery store/post office, a cafe and restaurant and lots of businesses that cater to the yachting community; sail makers, marine engine repairers, etc. As it is the first port for international yachts arriving in New Zealand after crossing the Pacific, there are almost more yachts than houses!
