Chesapeake Bay Twilight With Moon
Thomas Bertram POOLE
Painting - Oil On Panel
After a hot humid July day my Annapolis friends took me for an outing on their 35 foot Chantiers Jeanneau motor boat.
The boat sped across Chesapeake Bay to Annapolis harbour. We anchored across from the Chart House Restaurant, near the Naval Acadamy, and watched the city lights come on around the landmark Maryland State House.
After a wonderful picnic and, with an hour until dark, we weighed anchor. Martin opened the throttle and made for home! I snapped pictures left, right and center while trying to hold on for dear life! The atmosphere was so thick one could feel it like a grey overcoat, even though the humidity had subsided a bit - the sky and sea changed to dense earthy colors. As we overtook the couple in the smaller motor boat, I was able to also snap the full moon which glinted like a gold coin! We arrived home as night fell. A memorable day!
The painting reminds me of Clause Monet's "Impression - Sunrise"
It is part of a series of smaller sized works which I am offering at introductory prices.
I can do a print on canvas, or an exclusive painting - please contact me.
