    Why not? I sent a picture of that to my 5 yo granddaughter - "Hey Sweetie, this is our next project."


    I like abstract but COME OOOOONN MAN - fifteen MIL? And you can't figure out how to hang it?

    This is nice too.

    Getting the gallery going for the summer. It's on a pier in a fishing village. Mostly watercolors of local scenes.

    This Sargent I really like. The detail in the background architecture is highly detailed while the foreground boats just sort of drizzle down the page. Pretty bold.

    The Irish painter John Skelton did quite a few pieces on local fishermen and their currachs.

    Gilkerson, Sloop Providence pursued by HM frigate Soleby.

    The action depicts Jones' dramatic escape from a Royal Navy frigate on September 1, 1776.

    Simpler is better, except when complicated looks really cool.

    Paul, I was fortunate enough to do some work for Bill Gilkerson, and we agreed that in lieu of dirty money, he would pay me in part with artist's proof prints of his work, including Sloop Providence pursued by HM frigate Soleby. It is quite large, gorgeous, and awaiting framing before finding an honoured spot on my living room wall. I also have this one from his American Whaling series



    Jim Vincent’s Boat

    "One of 12 aquarelles portraying the dangerous occupation of Yankee whaling ships and sailors in their incursion into the most northern reaches of the Pacific, from the sailing period into the age of steam. Jim Vincent's boat lost in the ice in May 1885. Produced for portfolio inclusion with the volume “American Whalers in the Western Arctic – the final epoch of the great American sailing whaling fleet”."


    (The print reproduction that I found on-line & pasted above is very poor quality - the actual print is much more vivid. - mmd)
    Hope for the best, but plan for the worst.
