'OTTO Paints Boats' by Jim McVicker

Paul Rickard set up a day last Sunday to paint with Otto. We went down to the old boat basin on First Street in Eureka. Otto was working on a large painting with it lying flat on the dock, the way he has always painted. I chose to paint him rather than the boats. This is the boat launch dock, so we had a lot of activity coming and going.   14x11 oil on linen panel


  1. I like the way everything is somewhat tonal with his canvas full of color..My favorite painting of otto

  2. Great composition, lovely, warm tones and a soulful tribute to Otto. LOVE this painting!
