sunfish sailing on the Hudson [painting]

I’ve been following Hollin Calloway on twitter for a while now – and am amazed every time she posts a picture of a new painting, or even photos of a painting still in progress – just incredible work and beautiful results. and she occasionally paints something near and dear to my heart, the beloved Sunfish sailboat (see her landscapes for more Sunfish paintings).

Sunfish Sailing on the Hudson – by Hollin Calloway

she has an Esty shop, where you can purchase some of her original paintings or high quality prints of them – they would be a perfect decoration for a home or cottage of the sailor in your life.

a print of the painting above can be purchased from directly from her Etsy shop here.

Excellent quality print of sunfish sailing on the Hudson River, an original acrylic painting representing my favorite hobby other than painting, and the original has been gifted to the Manhattan Yacht Club. A framed version is also available.

very clever commercial:

the music of sailing

love this abstract picture I found over on H2uh0’s blog: Bonehead Moves on the Water from SF Bay and Beyond!

at first glance, I thought it was a bunch of sailboats off in the distance on a grey horizon.


maybe it’s the sheet music for Christopher Cross’s song “Sailing“?

sailing art: Monet – The Riverbank at Petit-Gennevilliers

I like Monet.

The Riverbank at Petit-Gennevilliers, Sunset (1875)

Oil on canvas, 61 x 80 cm

today’s tunes: the gloaming – the Booley House (live at the NCH)

this is a beautiful instrumental song by the group known as The Gloaming (I’ve posted previous songs from them here).

the video is a brilliant time-lapse of a pen and ink with watercolor sketch by Donegal-born Limerick-based illustrator Jacob Stack.

the Booley House will be on their upcoming album: Live at NCH (will be released on Real World Records on March 2nd 2018.)
