The_Island_Home_copy

Today I am adding one of the older paintings with title “The Island Home”, size 25inches x 16 inches, oil on canvas, painted as commission for collector who loved Islands and steamboats connecting with Main Land. The “Island Home” was a sidewheel steamer operating by Nantucket and Cape Cod Steamboat

Ah! A beauty Marek. Beautiful skyscape and perfect seascape too. What ship in the background? Coastal type for sure.

[COLOR="Blue"]I echo young Stephen's words by saying 'the sea and the sky' and would add 'can taste the salt in the air and feel the wind on my face'. Very well done indeed 'that man'! [/COLOR]

[COLOR="Blue"]"Panic ye not [COLOR="Navy"]Marek [/COLOR]Young Man"! The 'Paint brush Fairy' ~ tried to post an image picture but for some reason SN will not accept ~ will reactivate your talent forthwith with the 'Flying Angel' for 'back up'. What more could an NAE [Nautical Artist Extraordinaire] so desire? [/COLOR]

I whistle up the 'Magic Brush'. Sometimes it doesn't work. Usually a call from the bank manager helps.

"call from the bank manager helps"...oh, this is not without reality but, I always prefer to seat with brush in studio above doctors waiting room waiting for magic pill which solve all those problems.Gentleman soon first day of Spring! so just let's sail in our armchairs. Graham, I have no clue how technically SN is working but time to time is just nice to communicate with all of you. My best

I knew an artist I met many years ago. In his late 20s. He was struggling. Next moment had has met a woman with lots of dosh. She was a good 20 years his senior. She became his 'manager'. Still on the go for what I have heard.

The same fellow wanted to hire a model to so some 'life classes'. If several of us would share the cost. He asked me if I was interested. My first question was, "Is she pretty?". He replied, "You are not the quite certain type of painter we want in the group." Ooops!

Lovely painting once again. There must be something in the air.! I have only done two paintings in the last 4 months or so.

GTP. The toy phase is current. The 'life class' was back about 30 years ago.

Jim, We look forward to your new works!
