You may have noticed my affinity to sailing in many of my paintings. Its because I grew up sailing along the coast of California. My family owned the Branta, a historic 60 foot ten meter classic sailing yacht. Built in 1924 in Germany and still is in racing shape. My brother keeps it at the San Diego Yacht Club. We had a large red and white stripped spinnaker for racing downwind.
“Spinnakers Downwind” is 48×36″ painting with lots of texture. It is gestural and expressionistic yet gave me the feeling of those end of the day races. It is available for sail. (sale).
