Lobster Pier -- work in progress

Working on a commission that I started in the beginning of June with some onsite sketches and reference photos.

Right after I started on this, I got sick. And I don't mean just a little sick, I mean hospital, blood tests every 3 days, and six miserable weeks of being sick.  That was not the summer I'd planned on!

I feel grateful to be back in the studio and tackling this painting again.  It's a lobster pound in Kittery, Maine.  I feel like I have the essentials down, but need to work out how the many elements of the painting support (or fight) each other.
