Boat Art

I am proud of my wife and like to show off her work. Water colour of DIRT FREE at anchor in Cape May, NJ and the photo she took it from.

That hysterical laughter you hear as you sail a way in your "new" boat ..... is the seller.

Re: Boat Art

That is a nice painting! (and a nice boat too)

Well done, both of you.

I enjoy painting and drawing boats too (watercolor, ink, acrylic, etc.).

So please pass along my sincere compliments to your wife and artist.

Re: Boat Art

Watercolour of a previous boat that was painted from a photograph by a local artist Marian Forster of Emsworth. The picture shows the first time I crossed the English Channel in my own boat to a foreign country (France), always a special moment.

Re: Boat Art

Awesome painting. I am envious. Many years ago I did some painting. Maybe it's time to start once again.

Re: Boat Art

I recall that Ellery Thompson -- an old Connecticut dragger captain who gained acclaim for his paintings -- said that all his fellow dragger captains who wanted a portrait of their boat wanted it set in a storm at sea, at night, at the moment lightning is striking the boat.
