This painting is called "Sailing" and is oil paint on board. It obviously is not a portrait of any particular sailing event or craft, however, it comes from a kind if distillation of the sailing we did as children and as a family when I was young. Good times! Fresh breezes with sailboats scudding along; calm water with never a zephyr; the rough, cold swell and dip of the ocean with us bobbing about like corks when we capsized in a gale; or sunshine reflecting off white full sails in easy speed.
This is an oil painting on canvas of a certain little baby boy who just loved his new blue rain boots. He is now a full grown man and just as handsome.
