The Wave


This is the first painting I ever did aboard schooner American Eagle, and the one that cured me of ever bringing oil paints aboard a sailing vessel again. (I’m really sorry about the mess, Captain John.)

When you’re on land looking at the sea, the waves are coming toward you. That is not necessarily true out to sea. I like the simplicity, the composition, and the accidental color notes caused by the roll of the deck.


The Wave is oil on archival canvasboard, 9X12, and is in a classic gold plein air frame with natural linen fillet. Shipping included within the continental United States. For Hawaii, Alaska and international shipping, please contact me directly to calculate surcharge.


If a painting disappoints, I will of course refund your money, on return of the painting back in my Rockport studio. Returned art must be properly packaged, with corner protectors as required and insured to its full value.

All refunds will be processed back to your original method of payment.
