Tall Ships in Boston Harbor

Ready for exhibition are these two new works among the others that I am finishing


"The Oliver Hazard Perry Sails Boston"
oils on canvas   20 x 24"

This is one of the many vessels that I had the pleasure to see
up close and personal at the recent "Sail Boston 2017"
where about 50 tall ships and schooners sailed
by while I watched with my companions aboard the Spirit Cruise Ship
"The Odyssey" It was a grey day but I was inspired by 
the opportunity to put the harbor skyline as the 
backdrop of these magnificent and complicated ships.
Hope you will enjoy more of them as I go on to
complete the whole collection. Be patient though
it could take years with all the pictures I took.
I will also create combinations of sailing vessels
as I see fit to compose. Enjoy.



"The Europa Sails Boston"
oils on canvas 20 x 24"

From the Netherlands the Europa inspired me to create
it with the old and new buildings of Boston Harbor, 
The juxtaposition of the old and new ignites a
visual wonderment in my opinion, seeing old Boston
with the new and a ship built in the last century, so interesting!
And for me that's what I'm all about doing paintings that challenge
our imagination and appreciation of the past.
Hope you like it and look for the rest of my collection as I go along, Thank you
