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