  2. Wow, I love that painting, you have really captured the waves.
    Thanks so much for visiting my blog and becoming a new follower, I appreciate it.
    Now, I wonder, have you ever read the book "Sailing Alone Around The World"? It is a classic. I just read it this past year and try to tell everyone I know to read it!
    Okay, you just found me and I am telling you what books to read! Sorry, but if you read it, you will know why I am telling you this, it's just so good!

  3. Hi Randall! Thanks for visiting my blog the other day. I'm glad it led me back to your blog. We had a vacation in the Galveston area last summer and it was a great place. To anser your question-it was a bass I painted, but a largemouth one, not a sea bass. I hope I did it right! My hubby is quite the fisherman so i was doing some fish paintings for him.

  4. I don't think I've read that one Kay. I've read some sailing type books which I'll try to name here one is called 'Sloop' about a guy who rebuilds a Herreshoff 15 gaff rigged sailboat which I really like and one about Benjamin and Gannon classic wooden ship builders who work on Martha's Vineyard I think, a really interesting book. Another about a guy who builds a boat using some type of hide over in Uk I think and sails across the atlantic/ or paddles I forget which. I've read one of Patrick O'Briens first novels of his sailing series, tough read for sure. That's about it so far.

    Jane, Galveston is a nice place to visit, and Chorpus Christi is a nice place also much clearer water, haven't been there in a while though.
