This week I am featuring a print of one of my shipwreck paintings, entitled "Stranded".

The print is 8" x 10" and the overall frame size is 14.5" x 16.5".  The frame is tan stained wood with a cream coloured liner.  The print is protected by non-glare glass and the back is protected with Fome-Cor foamboard, and comes ready to hang.

Schooners were commonly stranded on our rocky Atlantic coasts, thrown there at the mercy of strong winds and powerful currents.  with no more than a compass to guide and sails for power, even the best skilled seamanship was sometimes not enough to prevent disasters at sea. Almost every issue of coastal weekly newspapers in the latter 1800's and early 1900's carried stories of stranded schooners.
