Very nice Bill. I like the fact that you always gives us the story on what you've painted. "A picture is worth a thousand words", so yours are a thousand plus! :)

Have you ever held an antique firearm or rod and wondered who owned it and the history behind it....where it traveled, what it did and the smiles and memories created?

This is a part of the wonderment we call the great outdoors.

Thanks, Frank. I do that to preserve the history of the things I love for future generations. Pictures of ships and the sea, Marine Art of New England, Florida, fishing, Bahamas, New England, Caribbean and the south Atlantic areas. Most of my original paintings are sold with a much more complete description of it's history, etc.

OUTSTANDING PAINTING BILL, and yes you paint with a purpose in mind, usually targeting the old ways, and that's the kind of books that I enjoy. The younger, fine contributors to FRANK's sight will understand and they, (as AL says, begin to see the outer bar getting closer), will put on the life jacket of old books and paintings, pictures, and stuff that takes us back to the time when we were indestructible, or thought so.

I love wildlife art that relates directly to fishing and hunting. Our home is loaded with contributions of famous art that permits us to relive our angling and woods adventures. I have a Lee Cable Wild Turkey Federation print that is a visual experience and priceless. We have a Charles Denault "Moment of Truth" you can't take your eyes off of. The Fisherman Catalog published a couple of beautiful prints of mine but I never learned how well they did. I suspect but don't really know, that the project did not do well. (Another Mister Smarty crash-n-burn!) :nervous:

This Reneson, or a variant, was used as a two page spread for a story on bass fishing in the July issue of Gray's . Check it out. It makes a hell of an illustration.

BTW I posted this image in a previous post.

Running The Gauntlet
This painting is the first in what will become a series of Marine Art depicting the actions of the southern state's navies and the Continental Navy during the American Revolution and War of 1812. Right after the Continental Congress declared war on Great Briton they invoked an embargo on all trade with Briton or importing of Goods in British Ships.

In this painting a British brig is attempting to run the blockade to deliver goods to C Charleston, So. Carolina. It's Acrylic, Pen & Ink on a nautical chart with foam-board backing and measures 11"x 14". Because Charleston was a thriving port and trading center the city was a favorite of the blockade runners.

The My original paintings and prints of same are available for sale. All Fine Art America prints are of top quality and carry a 30 day guarantee of satisfaction or your money back. To see them all, please goto: http://bill-hubbard.artistwebsites.com

Waiting for the Salt
Two coasting schooners wait at the a wharf in Gloucester, Ma. for the Salt Barque from Potugal to arrive. Following the Civil War and up into the mid 1920s, the port of Gloucester imported more salt and caught and exported more salt Cod than any other port in America. Salt was carried by large sailing ships across the Atlantic and coasting schooner distributed it along the coast.
>
Coasting schooners from all over met the Salt Barques in Gloucester and carried salt to Downeast Maine and the Canadian Maritime provinces. Eventually sail was replaced by oil for transatlantic and railroads carried the salt inland.

1775 - First Prize taken in Revolutionary war.
On Aug. 9, 1775 the So. Carolina Committee of Safety orderd it's privateers to patrol the waters off St. Augustine to intercept a shipment of gunpowder due for the British forces there. Capt. Clement Lempreire left Port Royal shortly thereafter in the armed ten-gun sloop Commerceand began a patrol of the area.
>
Early in the morning of Aug. 8th. they came upon the Brigantine Betseyat anchor outside the bar at St. Augustine. They sent away a boarding party which captured the British ship without a fight, with 11,000 lbs. of gunpowder in her hold and the Capt. and crew sound asleep. The Betsey'scaptain was given two alternatives - either have his crew load the gunpowder aboard Commerce or they would sink his ship. They accepted the first choice
>
As they finished loading the powder, a British frigate was seen coming out of St. Augustine. Capt. Lempreier spiked the Betsey's guns and quickly sailed for home. Outsailing the frigate, they landed the powder in Port Royal next day. Some powder was left there with the militia but the bulk of it was shipped on to Charleston by the inland passage. Thus the So.Carolina navy won an important engagement in the early days of the Revolutionary War.

"Margaret D " at her home port, Gloucester, Ma. prepared for the Mackerel seining season of 1912. She was built for my grandfather, Capt. John A. Dahlmer in Ashtabula, Oh in 1909. Named for and christened by my Mother, Margaret V. Dahlmer, the 69' vessel was moved to Gloucester in 1910 and entered the gillnet fishery. She then fished winters gillnetting and summers seining. Note her seine boat is alongside in the photo

Margaret D's seine boat was 30' long, It carried the seine net and was towed behind the seiner while underway. Once a school of Mackerel was spotted on the surface, she was released with one end of the net and rowed by 8 fishermen around the school while paying out the net. Returning to the seiner; the two ends of the net were joined and the crew drew they together to purse the seine, trapping the mackerel

These are 11X14 pencil sketches on artist bond paper available for framing from:
http://bill-hubbard.fineartamerica.com in several sizes at very reasonable cost and sold with a money-back guarantee.

Hey guys, this watercolor is appropriately titled "The Surf Fisher" by Mae Bertoni (I think a Connecticut artist). This painting appeared on the cover of Gray's Sporting Journal - Trophy Fishing Vol 3 Issue 2 back in '78. I've had a copy of this painting by my desk for years and when things get $#itty I just look at it for a few seconds and all just dissapears...
