Read the whole story:  This Nautical Art is an original oil painting, 25 x 35 inches painted with photographic references. On this particular day, the yacht depicted in the painting “Gunsmoke Blue”, resulted from a lucky opportunity. I was very fortunate to go out on one of the race committee tenders. We had just been at the last mark watching the rounding and in order to make it in time to the finish we had to go full throttle down the leg. We arrived at the pin end of the finish line and could see Stars and Stripes half way through the last leg of the regatta. Stars and Stripes had increased her lead over the frustrated Australians.   The boat from San Diego was just minutes away from her rendezvous with history. I painted the moment when the gun went off signalling the finish and the American’s regaining the America’s Cup. This listing is for a canvas printed in pigment inks.
