This is my tugboat drawn from memory. Tugboats are so peaceful, yet so powerful.

Seeing many kinds of tugboats outside the window, I can now draw one from memory.  Last time, I forgot the wheels.  Can’t forget the wheels.  They provide the bumper cushioning when pushing around massive cargo 100 times its size.

During the day, I see a nice variety of tugboats from my office window. Each one with its own distinct character, color and shape. Some are grandiose, complete with watch towers and some are diminutive. But all of them have a common daily task – to push/pull massive barges on the East River. Observing these floating workhorses is a relaxing way to rest my eyes from staring at the computer all day. When I have a moment, I sketch this small tugboat which is taking a break and coasting down river.

Have a Happy 4th of July, everyone!
