Sailboats

I was so inspired by another artist a few weeks ago that I painted a series of sailboats.  I love these paintings!  I am totally drawn to water, don't know why I'm living in the mountains!!!  I should be by the ocean...

Enjoy!


Sailboats 1 
Acrylic on 12 x 12 x 1 1/4 wrapped canvas


Sailboats 2
Acrylic on 8 x 10 x 3/4 wrapped canvas



Sailboats 3

The first painting is my favourite.  Don't you just love it when you find an inspiration that fits your vision so perfectly?  Hope you all have a fabulous weekend!

  2. Anne, this is by far my favorite of all your paintings and I'm pinning it in my illustration board. You captured a fantastic light - but more than that, the motion lines give me a feeling of complete freedom that cannot be described in words. xoxo!

  3. The first painting is my favorite too! I love the ocean and I live near the mountains also. I love them both, but I still lean more towards loving the ocean more :)

  4. The first painting is my favourite too - the way you've used the flecks of white paint to pick out sun reflections in the water and on the boat is just fabulous - I love this piece!

  10. I love your art! I too am drawn to water and sailboats ... I have some great beach/boat pics that I took last summer that I'm hoping to feature in my living room. Well, that is when I finally get around to working on a remodel! Sigh. I'm so behind on that schedule in my head ...

  19. Your colors are wonderful. Sailboats connote such freedom and peace, although actual sailing is probably pretty hard work!!
