Many thanks to Lynn and Augusta who answered my question about this little painting: Night or day? I wasn't sure at the time. I liked both and couldn't decide. Thank you so much for taking the time to comment. I finished the painting two days ago, and here's what happened.

Lynn chose Night. It was how I'd begun.


 Augusta chose Day. I really liked it, but I couldn't come up with the next step (it needed something).


 Meanwhile I was lifting and adding paint to make the background more interesting, and a night sky was emerging.

 

 Two days ago, I decided on this. A night sky, stars, navigation... and being me, it turned into Rub-a-dub-dub, a man in a tub.
 

Today, Lynn wrote: "I would choose night sky with a little fishing boat perhaps." Well, Lynn, it seems we were on the same wavelength! Thank you!

August wrote: "I would choose blue on top! It reminds me of my holidays at the seaside in winter." This could inspire another painting... Thank you!
