Art Paine, Fine Artist

The Art of Boats, the Boats of Art

Really Love to Pry II

Really Love to Pry II

This painting sold to a true connoisseur of marine art, a man who loved the painting upon first sighting in the beginning of the summer. It waited for him. Now it’s proud and rightful owner, he dutifully intends to transport it from his winter home in Jackson Hole, Wyoming to his summer home in Mt. Desert, Maine. One wonders if he doesn’t take it aboard his Sabre 32 sailboat on extended cruises throughout the East Coast?
It has been said that nobody paints Caribbean transparent water in oils as well as Art Paine and this depiction is among his very best. Art sometimes is compared with Winslow Homer, and he has little to be ashamed of in terms of his depiction of water. Though Art readily admits that he has a long way to go to even begin to emulate Winslow’s accurate lithographer’s eye, and unerring ability to tell a story through his work. As to that, Art points out in his droll way that his painting is improving every day and he has an Homeric advantage in not quite being dead yet.
