Here's a custom painting I did for a collector that is based on Captain Cook and the HMS Resolution. There are several items included in the composition including a sextant and ships wheel. The goal of the painting was to overlay a variety of forms so that the shapes, colors, textures, etc. relayed an sense of excitement, inherent conflict and almost unbridled energy associated with adventure.
“Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming "Wow! What a Ride!” - Hunter S. Thompson
