This composition was inspired by what I saw from the ferry leaving the Vineyard on a stormy day, when no other boats were about on the open water.  The Elizabeth Islands are the landmass in the distance.


As alone and apparently vulnerable this smallish schooner was, it also exuded a confidence and comfort on the sea that was calming in the midst of strong and variable conditions.


It turns out that a friend of mine is familiar with this boat, out of Woods Hole, and also has remarked her poise on the water.
