This yarn gets worse, much darker…
This little schooner had survived, only just, 2 heavy gales in the Bay of Biscay, the date was the fourth of November 1805.
She conveyed on board the most momentous news of that decade as she arrived at Falmouth, England.
Her unlikely name now immortalised in history was HMS Pickle.This painting measures 48 x 61 cm (19″ x 24″), available, price upon application.

NEW, “Cornish Race“, a commission in progress, lets see if my client approves this design?
Art fraud : there is a lot of it about.
I was in a High Court in Central London last week.
I’d prepared carefully including, very rare for me, donning a suit and tie.
It is certainly true that fine paintings as opposed to ordinary paintings, are among the most reliable at all levels, of medium to long term investments.
The 25 th of May birthday 🎂 went so well 🍷🎈📌, a memorable occasion for all the best reasons, hence the photos below some of you kindly requested.
I’m only just recovering from the party !
Cake candles were duly blown out, champagne and balloons pop’d.
We certainly did raise a glass to ‘Absent Friends’.
This got my attention, “Do you have any more prints of the painting: “Rhoda Mary” and “Katie Cluett” A Dispute Settled?”
Ans : yes. By the way, the Rhoda Mary of Falmouth won, narrowly beating the Katie Cluett of nearby Fowey.
This gentleman, Eric Evans, wrote a classic comment, “I am familiar to buying art over the internet and find that I am always impressed with finally seeing it in person. I’m already blown away the your art just seeing it on my monitor. Your use of light and water is stunning“.
This from a man who is very smart with computers including for the U S government.
He added, “I have been collecting Florida nature paintings by the Highwaymen (and similar style) and I believe your painting would be a beautiful addition to our home“.
For a new painting, I probably still have my original notes made with Frank TRebilcock for the painting so that would save us some research costs.
