I love this as I love sailing. Though I don't get much of an opportunity to do so nowadays. I find there is something very clean and cleansing about sailing on a day like the one in the picture. Just setting the sails, watching them in the wind and on the horizon, feeling the wind in your face on deck. I love racing too, and all the ropes and charts that go along with sailing off-shore. I do, however, get seasick sometimes below deck in rough weather and prefer to stay topside in choppy…

This series has a lot of very thick acrylic paints, plasters and textures. I did two on thick gallery wrap canvases. One is 60x20 and one is 40x20. I started them when I returned  from Jamaica trying to capture the colors of the water and skies. On the trip, the ocean was usually very calm but I imagined a sailboat race where there was a brisk breeze which stirs up the waves.
