TOWARD THE LIGHT
Day Twenty Nine - 30 in 30 Challenge
Kayaking is distinguished from canoeing by the sitting position of the paddler and the number of blades on the paddle. A kayak is a low-to-the-water canoe-like boat in which the paddler sits facing forward, legs in front, using a double-bladed paddle to pull front-to-back on one side and then the other in rotation. This sport is very popular here in Port Charlotte.
This painting started out as another misty swampscape but lacked interest. Hopefully by darkening the lower portion of the canvas and placing a lone kayaker paddling toward the light, it now has the spark it needed.
