Another Thames Barge. I think Mariano will like this one, simply because it`s a seascape. These ships once apon a time plyed the World with cargo from the Thames Estuary. Beautiful boats. There are still a few left owned by private people. You can join up to be a member of one of these and also take holidays on them, as long as you are prepared to do your share of work aboard.

  2. Vic, this is another wonderful painting. I agree with Azra, you captured the movement of the clouds and sails. I am sure Mariano will love this painting he is an expert on ships. I also like the various shades of color and tone in the water. Well done my friend.

    All the best to you and Rosemary,
    Joan

  3. Yes Vic,
    I love it;there is same magical about boats
    and the power of the wind trough the sails. A perfect harmony of elements that rest the soul and enriches the mind!
