An excellent capture, Nancy!
Thanks, Judy. I’m thrilled that this was chosen for the We Sell Art Group.
Very beautiful work of art, Nancy!! I’m naturally very fond of the gold leaf, as my husband is a master gold leaf artist and applies it to many boats up and down the Maine Coast. This is most certainly a magnificant ship, and you captured the figurehead perfectly!!!!
Patty, you are so kind. Figureheads are true works of art. Mystic Seaport in Connecticut has a special museum for these works of art. As for gold leaf, if you’re ever in Newport, RI, make it a point to visit their mansions (called cottages by the rich). There is so much gold leaf there you head would spin.
Your husband must be truly gifted.
A gorgeous, well captured photograph
Thanks, Wal! Your comment is much appreciated.
