Rock Lobster

I had almost forgotten about this little commissioned piece I did as a gift for a woman's husband. His name is Joey (as you can see on the side of the boat). She asked for some sort of boat and lighthouse scene and I of course said sure I can do that.
Then I mulled it over and thought, holy shit, I have never painted a boat/water/or lighthouse before... This could get interesting.

Later that night I had dinner at Red Lobster, and I looked down at my menu and saw this scene. Perfect boat/water/lighthouse combo. So that bad boy went home with me and helped me put this together for that woman.

I wonder if Joey saw this and thought, "This seems strangely familiar?"

(This reminds me that I do quite well with oils, but I just hate waiting for the pieces to dry!)
