A yellow boat

A yellow boat, oil on card,  15.2 x 10.2 cm  SOLD
As I was painting I kept thinking of van Gogh's famous fishing boats on the beach, then of Puvis de Chavanne's "Poor Fisherman" picture. I looked these up and they are not really similar to mine, nor is Redon's "Yellow Boat".

I carry memories of pictures, and they serve as inspiration, but when I look them up after having painted I find my memories to be totally erroneous.
