“Cornish Race”

NEW, “Cornish Race“, a commission in progress, lets see if my client approves this design?


The painting is for a gentleman in Florida USA with a family connection to these ships.
He told me he wishes this painting to be the centre piece of the new house he is building.

To be a new marine painting in oils by Gordon Frickers, 70 x 105 cm (27.1/2″ x 41 1/4″).

Intended as ‘crack ships’, the Rhoda Mary had been built at Falmouth, the Katie Clewett at near by Fowey [pronounced Foy as in boy], by two competitive brothers.

The painting also includes as a detail, the ‘Mary’ built at Falmouth by the same family.
