Marsaxlokk Malta

Marsaxlokk, Malta


Marsaxlokk is one of the dozen pretty towns in Malta. Years ago, Susan and I spent a month in Malta and toured every village on both islands. The Maltese paint their traditional fishing boats with stripes and sometimes with eyes on the prow.

The bright colored boats in this little harbor and their reflections in the water were an interesting subject. For me, this was an exercise in painting water and reflections.
