Colors of the Day

Pennan, Scotland, is a quaint fishing village perched on the very edge of the North Sea. A sleepy little town, it is the home for a handful of people. On its beach, Karsten finds fresh, contrasting colors in the lazy line of rowboats basking in the midday sun. Oil on canvas 16" x 20".
