Frostbite Regatta

Acrylic on canvas

About a year ago I got this idea stuck in my head.  I wanted to capture images of sail boats while on another boat so that the paintings I painted would have a real feeling of movement and energy.  Well after a lot of talk with people and 3 trips to the coast I was finally able to make some headway.  In November I was able to ride on the safety boat in the “Frostbite Regatta” sponsored by the Cape Fear Yacht Club in Southport NC.  I came away with some wonderful pictures and enough material to keep me painting until spring when I go back for the first regatta of 2012.  This painting is the first in the series from the regatta and I will post more as I go along.  I hope you enjoy it.
