Art: Bruce M by Artist Carol Thompson

The push boat Bruce M is hard at work on the Columbia River near Astoria, Oregon.

Artist comment:  A push boat is designed for just that.  The tower is elevated so the operator can see over the barge being pushed.  This is another in my 'Astoria, Oregon Waterfront' series.  I chose pastel as my medium and Canson Mi-Teintes was my preference for a substrate.  I transfered the drawing to paper and began painting the background, sky, headlands, and water (I spent most of my time making ripples).  Saving the best for last, I painted the barge, then the boat.  The name Bruce M was the final touch.
