For the last 2 years, a majority of my time has been spent cheering on our daughter at regattas. I've learned so much about youth sailing and racing, and to be quite honest, I love it! Some of the conditions these kids sail in would make any adult quiver in their boots! The gumption and tenacity I've seen in all of the kids makes me proud to be a part of it all.
With this painting I was hoping to capture the movement and action out on the water, as well as the bright sunshine. Thanks to Jim Skeel, an amazing photographer, I was able to use his photo to paint this.
