    I’ve been alone, painting for myself , in a lonely world. Resentful of galleries, hiding from exploiters, not sharing my art , until now. Mary, you and the rest of the people I have met since I joined Redbubble give me a new hope. I feel I’m home at last, with people who really enjoy each others art, for Arts sake. Thats the reason we create them in the first place! Thank You everyone for the kindness and genuine attention you all have given me.

    This P.S. is posted for Neil(Woodie), because I know he likes this info, and anyone else it might interest. The Painting was easy as paintings go, it’s simple and seemed to just flow out of the brush. The forward ship and the entire background was done in 5 minutes,and I just left it "unfinished"to accentuate the back lighting/sihouette effect, and to add emphasis to the detailing on the main ship. The hardest part was to put lean and motion into the piece without getting the composition “off balance” and making people feel unstable and seasick. By using the ship to slam down and displace all that water, I put weight to stabilize the ship, (you can almost feel the led keel), and to "solidify " the rolling water. And lastly, I took the viewer “out” of the ocean by raising the vantage point somewhere a little above the turmoil, and standing squarely on the “horizon line”.

    Thanks, Paolo, I was thinking the same thing when i was looking at Your work. I guess we like the same effect so we both do work to produce those results. You have got the painters creative touch in your photo’s and I’ve got the photographers eye of color light and composition in my paintings. What a wonderful way for us to give pleasure in this world yeah!? Aloha from Hawaii, thanks again Joseph.
