Several have requested that I do another boat painting, so here you go!. This little clipper ship has made an appearance in several paintings. Sometimes it has been at sea, other times the ship has been flying in the sky. This time it’s a little of both. Peter Pan’s song “You Can Fly” says this in one of the verses “Take the path that moonbeams fly…” That’s what this ship is doing I suppose….sailing on colorful moonbeams 🙂 This canvas painting ships mounted on 1.5″ wooden stretcher bars with edges painted black.
10 limited edition signed prints now available!
Title: The Great Escape
Paper Size: 8×10
Each is titled, signed, and numbered and ships direct from me.
Photo of the original which sold at an art show in Taipei in April of 2014. Interested in larger scale prints? Paper and canvas prints will be available in the near future. Be sure to follow on Facebook to catch this news 🙂
Viewers are able to take whatever they want when they observe a painting, but I wanted share that some inspiration came from this beautiful song when it was sketched out. I decided to create this short 1 min video clip of the painting and song together. The hymn: Nearer My God To Thee, by Sarah F. Adams. While this video features only the first verse, I wanted to let you know how the the 4th verse reads:
“Or if on joyful wing
Cleaving the sky
Caught up to meet my King
Swiftly I’ll fly”
(The original version of the painting will be released at a later date and will only be available direct through me as an 8×10 limited edition. The original painting itself is slotted for a 2014 art show in Taiwan.)
More prints of new paintings will be released over the next 4 months. Watch my facebook page to catch them! -Cindy
