Captain Barbosa by Laura Barbosa


Small (16.4" x 22.6")

Available to buy on…

Since my ancestry dates back to the times of red beard, I thought it only fitting to start painting pirates. This acrylic painting was created out my fantastical thoughts and wishes to someday be transported into the world of the pirate. Captain Barbosa was on display at the Tinicum Arts Festival for 2 days this July 2009 in PA. While hanging in the gallery, many people had to stop and take a look. Pirate Gifts and Collectibles are one of the hottest items of our time. I guess it is because of the popular movie: Pirates of the Caribbean with Johnny Depp which is one of my all time favorites! I love all the characters and will be creating more art from Dead Man’s Chest very soon so stay tuned for more. Acrylics on Canvas. 30×40″ (Original Painting has been SOLD)

My Artwork does not describe any one particular style, but rather my general attitude towards certain subjects or topics of our world. My Paintings convey my individuality, spontaneous thoughts and ideas. It is like a journey into the deepest corner of my mind. Others have described it as “An embarrassment of riches in a colorful world of subconscious thinking”.

    “ARRRRRRGH!!! Avast ye scurvy dogs!!!”"" Pirate banter just isn’t the same when you type it…LOL

  • True, I love how Johnny Depp’s character speaks in “Pirates Of The Caribbean”. Drunken Words sound great on a pirate. Savvy?
