Sailing Day, 2015, Jo-Ann Sanborn
acrylic on board, 5"x 7"
Sailing used to be one of my pastimes. I'm reminded of it's pleasure when I see a ship under sail on the horizon. A sailing vessel will suddenly take on a life of its own and rush forward as the wind fills the white sheets, blowing them up against the blue sky. A few nights ago sunset on the beach showed only two ships under sail. For today's painting I added a few more, reminiscent of the Connecticut shore and Long Island Sound. But the clouds are Florida, and the sunset was spectacular!
