I haven't painted since the pandemic hit us, but here's one I finished just before:

Tried to do an impressionist version of a photo I liked on the internet.  I enjoy messing about with paints.  

I painted an image from the 1987 America's Cup.  I named this piece "Connor Covered".  It's based on a popular photo at the time.

Nice thread. Have a couple of great limited prints from Jim Bolland, NZ as well as a original painting. Will post this later. The attached one is an original, I owe, painted by the German marine artist, Fr. Karstensen in the 20th and 30h. He shared some jobs with the well known Johannes Holst. One did the ships, the other the sea. This might not have been a "sharing job" as the ship is not a good as Joh Holst did his. See more here:

I have this on my boat.  It's a painting by Julia O'Malley-Keyes who is an incredible artist based in Cape Cod, Massachusetts.  Here is her website:  https://capecodartgallery.com/.  She has painted classic yachts for decades.

I had promised two more. Both by NZ Artist Jim Bolland.

The first one is a commissioned work by myself after my company had supplied materials etc. for the German IACC "UITG" built by Knierim in Kiel. This is taken from the original painting and there are 10 authorised copies around somewhere between GER and NZ. Title of the painting: UITG in command.

This also from Jim Bolland. I should ask the readers about what they are seeing here and where it could be.

The story behind the picture is about a grandfather out on the water and seeing the boat for the first time. The grandson is asking: "Pop, is she flying now?"

This shows a pale forehead, which probably would have been common, given knit caps and no sunscreen. 
I also wonder if this was one of those sailboats with vast deck areas and two wheels.

When Dyneema started to be used for standing rigging someone said that wire rigging might turn out to have been a relatively short term aberration.

On vacation and my friend has a few nice pieces.

Sorry about the reflection. I don’t think I have permission to remove them from the frame for a better pic.

Late local artist, Ludlow Thorsten. He wasn’t a sailor and he usually had the boom hard to windward in his artwork. I was pleasantly surprised to see this proper representation of sailboats.

What's going on here?

A cup with a place to put the bowsprit.

Or it's a mug for lumpy oatmeal.

But the main question for this thread (other than the obvious "what's it rate") is.... IS IT ART

Another "handcrafted artifice of great utility":

.

complete with required sailing art:

Also suitable for dewatering your bow sprint, and works well with lumpy oatmeal.

I have this set of three prints in my kitchen. I bought them in a regular gift shop and I love the detail in them. 
The artist seems to be De Keyser or something like that.

I bought this piece of art for my dad for Christmas when I was in high school.  At the time the shopping mall had these art vendors in the center court area and one of them had a bunch of these wooden style art pieces.  One of the pieces was this sailboat.  I really liked it and bought it for him.  It reminded me of our family boat at the time.  It was his favorite gift I ever game him and still hangs in the main dining room of his home.

We've touched on Cubism, but Deconstructionist marine art also deserves a mention...

I think that's "post-structuralist."

What the structure looks like after beating against a post.....

I think the rig is technically correct (it's from a angled perspective), but the rest...well...

From PUNCH I think (1880s)

Hmm- I’m assuming that this is the “Lady Brassey” the cartoon refers to. Looks like she was an interesting character and a seasoned world cruiser. I have no idea what the further context was.

She must have been quite a gal:  once around the world and twice around the Horn and many adventures in the Atlantic.

Steam_Yacht_Sunbeam.jpg

Sunbeam (157') - the first private yacht circumnavigate the globe

(Her book) "...A Voyage in the Sunbeam, describing their journey round the world in 1876–1877 with a complement of 43, including family, friends and crew, ran through many English editions and was translated into at least five languages. Her accounts of later voyages include Sunshine and Storm in the East (1880); In the Trades, the Tropics, and the Roaring Forties (1885); and The Last Voyage (1889, published posthumously)..."

She knows here stuff - a writing sample:

File:Bermudian sail racing boats by Lady Brassey 1885.jpg

"...She had published privately earlier works including A Flight of the Meteor, detailing two cruises in the Mediterranean on their earlier yacht Meteor and A Voyage in the Eothen a description of their travels to Canada and the United States in 1872. She was also involved with the publication of Colonel Henry Stuart-Wortley's 1882 Tahiti, a Series of Photographs..."

I know that view.  That's the field where my sailboat came from.  It was just off to the right, out of the frame.  Covered in faded blue tarps...
