Airship Over the Mountain

Original Painting - Acrylic on Canvas 20x16

Airship Over the Mountain
The airship, “HMS Standish” floats above the towering mountain peaks in all her Victorian splendor sailing slowly and serenely towards undiscovered lands beyond on a mission of exploration. Boldly going where no man, no, wait that’s the starship Enterprise …never mind.
Umm, did you know that HMS stands for “her or his majesty’s ship”?

Rainy Night Blues

Original Painting - Acrylic on Canvas 20x16

A summer thunderstorm drenches the city and isolates the pedestrians under awnings and umbrellas to escape the downpour. Car tires swish through puddles on the wet pavement as the rain beats a steady tattoo on the city streets. The distant rumble of thunder joins the rumble of traffic and bright downtown lights challenge the sporadic flashes of lightning illuminating the dark sky above.

Airship by Moonlight

Original painting - Acrylic on canvas 16x20

The intrepid airship “Gypsy wind” floats across the night sky catching the light of a brilliant full moon. Only the flap and sputter of the steam driven propeller breaks the silence of the night as she sails past the clock tower towards distant lands and adventures.
