52nd National Catalog


Wanderlust runs deep, with travel almost a basic need for me as a human and artist. These two sailboats are longing for their next adventure. Sail with Me says I want to take that trip and have you there by my side … sharing the view. That’s a goal with all my work. To take us somewhere together. Painting on location – plein air – makes every day a treasure unlike any other. After I had already been standing at my easel for hours, sailing school students rolled a parade of small craft out onto the water. It was magical. Multiple triangles sketched in behind the two main boats mark the sails of those travelers off on their day’s journey. Showing the way.
