Nags Head Pier (SOLD)

This was a fun little thing that happened. Almost as if it were all one big happy accident. 
It has a certain graphic quality about it. Why not?

Even in the not so early stages of an artist's career it's easy to make "The Fatal Error".
 I have done it and  I've watched you do it.  I have placed my focal point in the wrong spot or on occasion "off the canvas completely"! I have put the horizon line dead  on center of the canvas. In this example I show that I  was so worried about painting clouds that I decided on painting way too much parking lot.
