The Boats of Opua - #5867

#5867 has such a nice shape, I had to paint it. I saw it in the boatyard at the Opua Marina a few months ago. Perhaps it was getting a new paint job. This is the sixth boat painting I've done for my latest project, The Boats of Opua. Once I've completed a dozen or two, I'd like to use a few as studies for larger paintings.

The Boats of Opua - #5867 The Anna Marie
8" x 6" oil on gessoed board, unframed
US $125 plus $7 shipping


Edited to add:  A friend looked up the boat on the New Zealand fishing vessels register and tells that #5867 is a trawler and it has a name - Anna Marie!  Much prettier than a number.
