11X14 Acrylic on Canvas: This is the Farr 30 race boat I crew on Weds nights during the spring and summer. Commissioned by the owner for her husbands birthday I hope she likes it. She’s in the yellow coat with Ray next to her in the blue vest.

I am semi retired and love to travel with my 9X12 #140 Strathmore pad, my Sharpie Ultra Fine ink pen and five or six sticks of pastels or acrylics to color in my “finds” Sometimes I get real lucky and my wife Dawn will take some pictures I can use later. I seem to always be able to give some kind of sketch to my subjects or those bystanders who desperately want to give me some advice.

    A stunning piece with great movement…so very well done, Randy……her husband will be ecstatic…..no reason not to be!

  • Thank you so much Marsha, I had a terrible dull photo to work from so I hyped it up a bunch, tipped it over and gave it some waves. LOL!

    I think your client is going to be absolutely thrilled to little bits with this Randy! Wonderful work, and like Marsha said, great movement!

  • Thank you so much my friend! You know I can always do waves, but these shiny sails gave me fits! LOL!

    Between those two that have already commented I doubt I could add anything Randy… Really beautifully done buddy. And yeah, she’s going to be plenty happy with this, I know I would be.

  • Thank you very much my friend.
