Lines Secured

"Lines Secured"
24"x30" on stretched canvas

Last summer we took a dream vacation on the two masted schooner "Grace Bailey".  I took lots of photos and am now turning many of them into paintings.  On the cruise, the passengers are able to volunteer as part of the crew.  Each morning raising the sails is part of the drill.  Once the sails are raised, the lines need to be coiled and secured for the day.  Raising the sails is hard work, but lots of fun.  Coiling the lines properly also takes a bit of practice.
