Sailboat and Crew in Rough Sea 36×36 Acrylic

Please contact the artist – if you’d like to inquire about the painting.

A Sailboat and its Crew in Rough Sea is an award-winning dramatic scene of a sailboat on a stormy day. The electric cloudscape tells a story that is a bit more serious in nature. I believe that it is a sneak peek into what is about to come in 2020.

It was created in front of a live audience and that adds to the thrill of the piece. It’s a chance for me to open the curtains and let the world see how a painting is created.

The bold brushstrokes of deep blues, white and gold told the story of the quality of the air that tumultuous day out on the sea. And the crew was showing off its skill as they shifted over to the port side of the boat. I began studying how weather affects water in my undergraduate studio art classes and have been inspired ever since to capture this natural phenomenon.

Watch below as I paint in front of a live audience at a gallery and then in my art studio.
