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.

three years later, and I still just love this miniature painting by South African artist Lorraine Loots (@lorraineloots ) of Bill Murray’s character from the Wes Anderson film “The Life Acquatic”.
