Default Re: Outdoor Art -- Down to the Sea in Ships

Here's my latest painting titled"Down to the Sea in Ships" It's a 16X20" Acrylic, Pen & Ink on canvas board. It depicts three Gloucester Schooners, dory-trawling on Georges Bank in the fog as a huge ocean liner aproaches out of the murk. The scene is from the 1870s and the ship in the foreground is my rendition of the "L.A.Dunton" The schoners scatter and the dory's head for their mother ships.

In 1879 alone, 249 fishermen and 29 vessels were lost at sea from Gloucester alone. One of the most harzerdous perils of fishing on the banks was being run down by a steamer.

Therese and I are opening a new web site for our artwork. It's open for viewing now - all finished but for our store which will open later this week.

Check us out at: www.indianriverartistsstudio.com.

We would welcome your feedback and suggestions to improve the site.

Default Moby Something

Just finished this painting today and will put it on the new website as soon as I find a title for it. Thinking of calling it "Moby Something"
