A Million Dollar Breeze - 44 x 27 inches, oil

It's interesting;
most of the marine artists I like are American.
Maybe they are better than other nationalities
at getting images of their work,
or their countrymen's work, onto the internet,
which is where I found most of them.
For those interested in astrological sybolism,
the horoscope for the founding of the United States
shows Sun in Cancer, which is the astrological sign associated with
the sea and ships.
