      Abbreviated rules   07/28/2017

      Underdawg did an excellent job of explaining the rules.  Here's the simplified version: Don't insinuate Pedo.  Warning and or timeout for a first offense.  PermaFlick for any subsequent offenses Don't out members.  See above for penalties.  Caveat:  if you have ever used your own real name or personal information here on the forums since, like, ever - it doesn't count and you are fair game. If you see spam posts, report it to the mods.  We do not hang out in every thread 24/7 If you see any of the above, report it to the mods by hitting the Report button in the offending post.   We do not take action for foul language, off-subject content, or abusive behavior unless it escalates to persistent stalking.  There may be times that we might warn someone or flick someone for something particularly egregious.  There is no standard, we will know it when we see it.  If you continually report things that do not fall into rules #1 or 2 above, you may very well get a timeout yourself for annoying the Mods with repeated whining.  Use your best judgement. Warnings, timeouts, suspensions and flicks are arbitrary and capricious.  Deal with it.  Welcome to anarchy.   If you are a newbie, there are unwritten rules to adhere to.  They will be explained to you soon enough.

Most people that sail appreciate paintings, photograpghs, sketches and anything that depicts sailing.
Our editors provide us everyday with beautifull mostly photographs but there is more behind the horizon.
If you leave anything that depicts the beauty of sailing please leave the name of the artist, photographer,
Here is my selection that I stumbled upon Facebook today.

I agree with you Shackles..choke ..those that do it well in the painting department are rare and I would hope appreciated outside the boating scene. 

Having said that your personal favourite of the Pasta Anchor I'm not too sure about mate.

Pretty much anything by Jim DeWitt....

Years ago (90s) I ran across an artist named Siokos in a small gallery in Irvine, CA.  Really did a *great* job of capturing (in this case, IOR boats) interaction with wind and wave.  Most artists screw up, having the sails go the wrong direction or the whitecaps pointing upwind or something.  This Siokos nailed it.

Didn't buy anything, wish I had, and have never been able to find him/her.  Anyone with a lead?

Maybe not art but I love the image now on the front page from the world's largest regatta:

Not sailing art, but from the Danish Naval Museum gallery:

With arguably the most famous mistake in marine art!

Temporal sailing art, via NZHerald + "Sailing Anarchy" (that didn't give credit to the artists)

Yes, you see rightly. The 'artwork' is all done in sand!

Nope - the aft most guy is holding the tiller to windward - the guy in the cockpit is hauling on the sheet.

Tiller is above traveler? kinda hard to tack

I enlarged the image, and the traveler is above the tiller. Must be something else. Perhaps MidPack can shed light.

Plenty has been written about the tiller above the traveler in Breezing Up (A Fair Wind) though not in the art world. If the traveler is above the tiller, why is the light reflection on the traveler interrupted where the tiller crosses? It’s a minor error, and it doesn’t take away from the power of the painting.

That's the sprit, it's held to the mast by the snotter.

Very ambiguous! Looks like a transparent tiller. BTW, I am an oil painter of little fame.

WRT Breezing Up, I believe the picture posted also cuts off a portion of the painting that shows where that schooner in the background 'used to be' before it was fully painted in as you now see it.

Hardly ambiguous Bull. That tiller over the traveller thing is a Bichon-Frise self-tacking auto pilot, an arrangement modelled on the Floccinaucinihilipilification approach patented by a Dutchman called Smallegange. He was a Tea Clipper captain and painter of some repute around 1860. His real claim to fame was supposedly being the one that intoduced van Gogh to painting when he was a small boy.

Just before exhibition the Artist realized he had forgotten to add the tiller... as Oil paintings take quite awhile to dry he deftly used his finger to add in the tiller as the painting sat on the gallery wall using coffee from the corner espresso stand...

Here's a painting that was given to the King Harald of Norway for his 80th birthday a couple of months ago. The painting was paid for by Norwegian sailors as a crowdfunding, and shows the king himself at the helm on his 8meter Sira.

Do yourself a favor and get one of Bob Perry's drawings.  An original if you can afford it, if not a print.  The more I look at my drawing of the Valiant 40, the more things I see.  It is a functional drawing, made to convey information but it is also a work of art.

Nice of you to say so Ed. I think technical drawings can be works of art.

Best sailing art I've seen. My framer in Taipei flipped when he saw it was all hand drawn and that guy framed a lot of very high end calligraphy.

I have a tattoo of that picture (the fairy, not the Valiant) on my left forearm.  I think is is a nice juxtaposition to have a tattoo of a fairy on my 6'6", 225 lb. frame.  I have always had an attraction to fairies (the female variety anyway).
