Sailing on my mind

The Old photos below are from my history as a sailor. The old wooden boat that my family had since I was around 9 years old made a huge impact on my love for the sea. In November and December, I concentrated on putting my memories on canvas from a few old slides I found. Adding Catalina Island and my impressionistic stylings…

The three paintings from the old photo of the boats from the mountain and the coves at Catalina were started and slightly influenced by Van Gogh’s work. I had seen the movie “Loving Vincent” and was very inspired. If you have the opportunity to see this movie, do. They sell copies on Amazon. Adding the energy and colors of the sunrise was a challenge.
