Paintings > Ship Wreck: 1995-98

During childhood, each summer I saw a distant wreck, beached on a sand bar in Cape Cod bay. The USS Long Street was a derelict transport from WWII used for Navel target practice well into the 60's. It was a haunting sight that disintegrated a bit more with each tide and storm. In later years I photographed and painted it on unstretched canvas. This lead to a whole body of work based on documentary photographs of shipwrecks and rescues at sea.
