"The Day Sailor" Revisited

"The Day Sailor" Oil   20 x 16  NFS

I painted "The Day Sailor"  couple of years ago for my husband Casey.
 He loves this painting, not only because it was a painting for him, of him, and his boat,  
but of more what it represents to him.
Serenity, Calm, Stress Free and Freedom are some of the adjectives that come to mind when he or we are out there sailing on the Chesapeake Bay. 
 I call it his girlfriend.  Her name is Patriot.
 See the American Flag on the stern?  He will not leave the dock unless his colors are flying. 
 No kidding.
Where am I going with this post you say?  It is a stretch but,

From Rain Barrel Renee To Propane Tank Painter?

So you know those gianamic propane tanks that some of us have on the side of our homes?
Well I have one, but these are not mine.  I  got commissioned to paint "something" on them.
I had done this design before on some Rainbarrels (see pages to the right)
Mr. Van Gogh has inspired these with his Iris & Poppy paintings.  
I think they look much better than boring ole white don't you?

 After, Ta Da!
