sailing clowns

I stumbled on these unique paintings a couple days ago.  the artist Sean Landers has created a collection called “Around the World Alone”, where he depicts a solo clown, sailing on the ocean.

the Sailfish was the predecessor to the Sunfish. it was the first boat created by Alex Bryan and Cortlandt Heyniger – the founders of Alcort. the Sailfish is a board boat with a lateen rig, very similar to a Sunfish – but it was made out of wood and had a flat hull that you had to sit on top of while sailing.
