Description In this piece I have re-created the moment when a sailor onboard one vessel sights the sails of another. Meetings at sea are momentous occasions as news can be passed, supplies exchanged and just a chat to pass the time. This painting has been created using only professional grade acrylics on un-stretched canvas. The surface has been given a coat of art varnish. The overall size of this piece is 16X20 inches or 40X50 centimeters.
Anthony Dunphy, Numazu,Japan Member Since December 2008 Artist Statement As an artist, I strive to develop paintings that speak,not only to me personally,but also to a much larger segment of society about a wide range of subjects from florals to Classic cars. My past,as a sailor influences my choice of using water in many of my paintings. Living in Asia has lent a softer quality to my work,especially when it is a nostalgic look back at a simpler time. A love of Country music has seen the introduction of farm scenes,cowboys and trucks to my works as has a lifelong interest in classic cars with an Art Deco flavour. My finished works are filled with light and vibrant colors to reflect my personal view of the world. Joy is found in every part of my experience and I hope that the feeling conveys itself through my art to all viewers.
