Still not settled is which yachts to include, open to suggestions, do you have any in mind?
Marine art has occupied much of my time over the past few days while I gradually develop a group of new marine paintings. I’ll tell more of the others over the next few days.
It’s great to work on a delightful warm evening super yacht scene while outside we have – 4 C, steady snow falling and 2 inches ( 50 cms) of solid compacted ice on the hill into Itzac
A beautiful, rare, icy sunrise today.
Helped a friend moving furniture in Castelnau de Montmiral.
A while back in CdM I asked one of the elder villagers how old the houses are?
I was told, well the village was laid out and built by a Count of Toulouse in the 13th century.
We have had a few fires but not much has changed…

“Sea pictures for sea people”, the first Gordon Frickers brochure for 18 years!
At the super yacht Monaco Yacht Show 2009 several people amused Gordon Frickers by saying, “WOW, collector’s item!” Amused because as you know,
I can barely keep, up with it!
This is one of those days which reminds me of the debt we owe those who went before us to build our world.
The marine painting “Trafalgar Dawn” still haunts me (available in prints see http://www.frickers.co.uk/marine-art/trafalgar_dawn.html).
I am planning a new piece of marine art, the opposite view.
Today was very 21st century though.
This time I drove to Monaco from Nice, with the Monaco Yacht Show is officially finished parking is much easier.
I’d loved to have devoted some time to marine painting, oil or watercolours, probably water colours.
Final day of the Monaco Yacht Show, the world’s foremost exhibition for Superyachts. I have a plan of action…
My new brochure (ask for a copy or down load free from www.frickers.co.uk home page) is being very well received.
I have been amused to have several people say, wow, collector’s item!
Amused because there were a lot of seriously expensive brochures at Monte Carlo!
What surprises are in store today?
At the Monaco Yacht Show 2009, Port Hercule, Monte Carlo, this was to be my first full working day in the world of superyachts, , meeting super yacht people, excluding the 4 commissions last year.
For a start, The Monaco Yacht Show perhaps surprisingly has a carbon neutral certificate and advertises this fact with enthusiasm and when one learns more of he Monaco Yacht Show organisers achievements, with justifiable pride.
The weather was stunning, 28 C and not humid but my first sight of the exhibition had to wait.
