This is an older painting I've done and thought I'd put it up here through eBay for sale. This particular scene is a man sailing what I now call Offats Cove. It's originally named Offats Bayou which makes no sense what so ever to me and I'm sure others have thought that as well. So I officially call it Offats Cove which sounds a lot better. I was actually paddling around in a kayak on a Saturday morning and these sailboats were out having some fun.
Ever heard of Chauncy Ryder before? Well I found out about this artist and I must say I like his work. He's an Early 19th century American Imppresionist and the above painting was inspired by one of his paintings. I plan on doing some larger ones of these in 20x30 range just not sure when I'll get to it like all my other projects seem to be backing up lol.
I kind of like this close up crop of the boat and may paint another version of this with more detail in it. More surf scenes coming tomorrow still working on the same wave and once done I'm starting another series using some local surfers here in Galveston. Hope your having fun viewing my paintings and leave a comment or two let me know your out there or feel free to email me.
