|A live oil painting on the MV Skansonia, a retired Washington State Ferry|
Having been invited to paint at not one, but two tastings of the baking and catering offerings aboard the MV Skansonia, I did this painting from the same spot, but looking the other way. I’m afraid I can’t tell whether this is port or starboard, because on reversible direction ferry boats, both ends serve as the front of the boat. On an east-west route, one end of the vessel is designated simply as the west end, and the other, east. This painting looks to the east, mid-ship on the north side. For a description of the history of this ferry boat cum wedding venue, see my last post.
One can certainly see the attraction of getting married on this old Puget Sound commuter carrier. I, for one, would love to live here. I guess I’ll have to settle for doing the occasional live painting of her festive events.
