The Masts Have It – Featured Art Prints

Here in the United States, we celebrate Memorial Day the last weekend in May. It is a national holiday to honor our fallen soldiers. Since it is a three-day weekend, it also has become the unofficial beginning of summer and summer activities. As we honor our fallen, we also celebrate life with family and friends and for many parts of the country it is a time to finally get out and celebrate sunshine and outdoor activities. I was fortunate enough to be in New England a few years back at this time of the year.  I can’t help but think of the scene I have featured here when I think of this three-day weekend. Boating, fishing and enjoying the great outdoors.

I created these two prints using an abstract watercolor technique. This particular technique creates sharp lines and shapes. With the detail of the masts, I wanted to keep them and the harbor as the focal point. What you are seeing is two, two mast boats side by side in both prints.

Majestic Boat

I love the majesty of these boats and can only image the splendor with their sails unfurled.

    Wonderful prints, Kirt. I love to see the masts on sail boats, there’s so much going on in their complicated structure, and the lines are beautiful, as you highlighted well here.

    Hi Kirt. These are both beautiful prints. I love looking at sailboats. The saturated colors in the first one are particularly appealing. Both make me think of, almost feel a cool breeze from the water touching my face on a hot day.
    Happy Memorial Day to you and yours.
    This is what I’m hearing all weekend, but it’s pretty cool. Hugs.

    The masts and sails really do pop out. The technique works so well for making them the focus of the image. Beautifully done. Wishing you and your family a wonderful long weekend Kirt.
