Another fine painting SOLD and delivered
A painting about change, exhibited as were 29 others of my paintings, at the European Parliament, May 2011.
The first all steam powered Atlantic crossing.
In this painting the paddle steamer “Sirius” is being overhauled by the ‘crack’ Liverpool clipper “Dreadnought” ~ but history remembers better the diminutive Sirius.
She is also said to have inspired a chapter by Jules Verne in his book ‘Eighty Days Around The World’.
