About the painting...
My barque is wafted to the strand
By breath Divine;
And on the helm there rests a hand
Other than mine.
I like these words by Henry Alford and thought they fit this painting particularly well.
I hope to do a larger verison of the painting at some point. In fact, many of these small paintings are meant as studies for larger works. Sometimes those develop and sometimes they don't. I often don't know which ones will work best or move me to do a larger piece. On other occasions it's immediately known and from the very start the small piece truly is a study for a larger work. The nature of the ships themselves in this series leads me to believe many of these studeis would work well on a larger scale.
Bids are now closed.
