On Billows and the Sea

“On Billows and the Sea” – August 2015
Acrylic on Canvas

I love sailboats. To me there’s something so beautiful about vehicles powered by renewable, clean, natural energy such as water and air. I guess it’s not so surprising that we now own a hybrid car. During my childhood, as I learned about history, sailing and pirates, they were all vessels with white sails. Even a few weeks ago during pirate days in the Thousand Islands, we saw many sailboats and they all had the same white sails. But when we were in Thailand and Cambodia we saw a different type of boat. These boats had red sails that looked like dragons wings. The bright flash of red in the midst of a tranquil blue sea was startling and wholly memorable.

This painting is designed to have a calm sea but the skies are filled with billowy clouds that push the dragon boat along.
