Here is the finished painting. In the actual painting the colors are not this intense. Don't know why my camera chose these colors. Finished this painting in time for the joint OSA - Portland Maritime Museum Show in May.
This is a painting in progress of a snarled head-sail sheet on a Lewmar self-tailing winch. The winch is on the sailing vessel Shango. We were guests of Amy and Roger Block aboard Shango when she sailed from the Dominican Republic to the Bahamas in 2010. I hope to have this painting completed for the joint Nautical Show in May with the Oregon Maritime Museum and Oregon Society of Artists.
