Artist's description:

A lot of times simpler is better, which is probably why I’m fond of the beat up, small aluminum fishing boat depicted in “Touring with 6 Horses”. It’s the perfect size for touring around little islands and hidden inlets in Lake of the Woods, Canada. It can get into areas that a bigger boat couldn’t and if you accidentally hit a rock (or 2....) it’s not too big of a deal since it’s already in pretty rough shape. The motor is a 1965 Johnson 6 Horse outboard that my grandfather owned, and it still runs like a champ due to my mechanic mother’s diligent care over the years. One day we were out touring around and stopped to do some island exploring. I decided to relax and take a nap and when I awoke the wind had picked up and blew the tall grasses around me. The swishing of the grasses, the sunlight dancing on the water, it was utterly peaceful. In the painting, I wanted to impart the loose dreamlike quality of the scene that I had felt that day on the lake.
