Sailing Day



7 X 5 inch oil painting on canvas panel.
S O L D

It’s been a while since I’ve been on a boat, years in fact. The feeling of freedom as the wind rushes by is something I’ll never forget though.

peaceful Your "sailing on choppy waters" reminds me of a sailing race I witnessed in St Maarten a year and a half ago.

Really nice Kim. That one thick stroke on the sail brings everything to the painting. Makes me wish we still had our sailboat!
