Boats at Rest—Beijing, China by Judith Priddy-Orr is part of Georgia's State Art Collection. According to Priddy-Orr, "In Beihai Park in Beijing the people rent these rowboats to relax on the lake. I was intrigued by the repetition of patterns, colors, textures, shapes. After photographing them from other angles, I changed my view to show the rusty bottoms." Photograph, 13 1/2 x 20 inches
