Burning Ship, and Burning Ship Study

This is the larger painting that resulted from going through the process of making a smaller study (below) first.

A local gallery owner put a call out to artists to create work for an exhibit on the theme of Oceans and their accompanying Myths. Living in a small village that still has operating fishing boats, and knowing New Brunswick has its own Burning Ship myth, I decided to tackle this idea.

This is a study for the larger painting above, though the study has an honest immediacy about it, that you often tend to lose when working on larger paintings, and so I think this smaller painting gains a validity all of its own.
