This artwork is a sailor’s delight: wind, water, blue skies, and the lovely afternoon sunlight pouring across the sails. No competition here, just a happy coincidence of two boats heading out for a perfect sail.
Don’s maritime experience came about as a crew member aboard many traditional sailing vessels including schooners and square-riggers. He continues to be an avid sailor.
