Art: Ruby Lily by Artist Carol Thompson

The fishing boat Ruby Lily moves steadily on the Columbia River under the Astoria/Megler bridge.

Artist comment:  This pastel painting is another in my series of Astoria, Oregon waterfront scenes.  The commercial fishing vessel, Ruby Lily, is of particular fascination for me.  I have a thing for boats (of all kinds), so I especially enjoyed this subject.  I chose pastel as my medium for its brilliance of color and the ease of application and no waiting for paint to dry.  Starting with the sky, I painted the background and then the foreground water.  I painted the bridge and it's piling, saving the boat until last.  I used pastel pencil for the fine detail of trim and rigging.
