The Art of Sailing

Here's some artwork recently submitted by a few of our blog followers. All are certainly beautiful. The first is a painting by Patricia Feiler. It is now hanging in the beach cottage of the Church of Atonement in Quogue. It features George Sandberg's SS.

The second and third below were sent to me from Philip Martin. Says Philip, "I came across this 1913 painting, 'Idle Sails,' by John Singer Sargent, on the jssgallery.org website. Except for the stern, the boat looks a lot like an SS. I'm throwing in Winslow Homer's 'Breezing Up,' because it exemplifies the sheer pleasure of sailing."

Thanks for the submissions!
