Herekiah Frith's EXPERIENT. Frith was a Bermudian, a gentleman 'privateer'. His vessel was the EXPERIMENT. Here she is shown moored off Frith's base, Spithead, Paget, Bermuda. Not the signature on the lower right... 'Deryck Foster 1924 to 2011' Deryck was my art 'teacher' when I was first starting out as a painter. Deryck passed in 2011. His daughter acquired the contents of his studio, several beautiful paintings as well as some of models. There was one unfinished painting in the studio. His daughter asked me to complete it. Deryck jad only done the very basic drawing in outline and some colour here. Very unfinished. Deryck had done an earlier painting, very similar, same vessels, same background etc. I have seen the original and I have photos of the models of EXPERIMENT. I started a year ago, but finally finished a couple fo months ago. My own signature is on the lower left side. To make sure the story will be remembered, all of the details etc are in a do***ent and js attached to the back of the frame.
