1937 Americas Cup Defender Trials
J Class Yachts Ranger vs Rainbow
Oil on Panel 12x18

I wanted to try a stern viewpoint showing the yachts close hauled down to the Beavor Tail off Newport RI. 

HMS Euryalus off Cadiz 1805
Oil on Panel 12x18

This painting returns me back to the subject that first induced me to start painting, reading many accounts of Nelson as a boy , id often sketch to recreate the scenes depicted and later I taught myself to paint so I could better depict the scenes.

This painting depicts the 36 gun frigate Euryalus acting as Nelson eyes, watching the port of Cadiz within which the combine fleets of Spain and France sit at anchor awaiting a chance to escape Nelsons blockade.
