Each aspect of the painting exceeds my expectations.  While your paintings are beautiful to look at over the internet, the actual painting has a warmth that can only be felt by seeing the real thing. I also had a reaction I had not expected. My father passed away from a stroke when I was seven. He loved to paint and I remember watching and being around him while he painted. When I opened the box and revealed the painting, I got the smell that I had not had since I was seven. I guess it was both the varnish and paint but it was warm and wonderful.
Thanks for a great experience,
Eric
P.S. I’ll contact you when we have it installed at the new house. Maybe we can get a Skype session and I’ll give you a tour of its new home. I looked at the flags on the stern and it spells out MQKJ. Any significance?

Have you ever thought, “I’d love a painting like that one?”

Give me a call or email ! ?

Our weather systems as any sailor can tell you, have an untidy habit of not following the neat smooth curves of prediction beloved of economists and scientist.
A habit of townies and city folk who don’t understand that terms like ‘#floodplain‘ are a warning not a cute pastoral anachronism .
