The first layer of this painting uses light washes of green to block out the shapes.

This painting is based on summer fishing trips with Grandpa Hanson in Maine. CJ asked Grandpa if she could sit on the “High Side of the Canoe”, and he agreed to let her. He smiled because he knew that whichever side his little grand-daughter chose would become the ‘high side’ as he put his weight on the other.
