Love Schooners ?

Painting schooners is always a pleasure for me, more so in this instance.
The beautiful working Schooners Racing, Rhoda Mary and Katie Clewett commissioned by Frank Trebilcock, a descendant of the families who built the three renowned vessels two schooners and a sloop.
This painting is now owned with pride by his son and definitely not for sale although fine art prints are still available.
