Oil on canvas  12"h x 24"w
Portland, Oregon on the Willamette River


I started this one looking out the window of my old Navy Launch, 'Victory'.  As you might know, 'Victory' capsized during the New Years winter storm of January '19, but the beginnings of this canvas survived.  After a few years distance from the heart breaking event, I was able to bring the scene back into my focus and complete 'A Little Adventure'. 

See the model boat setting in front of the window?  I made her out of coffee stirring sticks.  She's christened 'The Java'.  Her hull survived the shipwreck but she took a lot of damage and needs a refit.

Update June 2022: I'm picking up the 'Java' again. It's good to see her coming back together. You can see more at https://www.instagram.com/paintings.by.philfake/
