And A Swarthy Sea Captain He Shall Be

I had been saving a huge square of masonite since I-don't-know-when to use for I-don't-know-what. I noticed it tucked away in my old bedroom, and decided the time has come. Started working on this painting weeks ago! It was almost like I was a fine artist, taking more than a few days to rush something to completion!

And it's still not dry. Now I remember why I don't do big epic oil paintings anymore. I can't scan it yet, and it's so stiff and heavy I don't know if I will be able to, but here's the crappy dim photo version while I wait for my Seaman to dry (hehe).


  1. This is awesome Cathy!I love all the detail. I like all your informational posts too. Lion King is my favorite movie! Closely followed by Fantastic Mr.Fox, The Iron Giant, Good Will Hunting, and Terminator 2. I just realized I need more comedies on that list. I guess that's what tv shows are for.

  2. omg the word I had to decode to post that comment was scrotum lol

  3. Hahaha the security word decoders are ridiculous. I am surprised Terminator 2 is on that list! (though it is obviously the best of the terminator movies). I just watched the Secret of Kells. The forest in that movie is amazing! Everything was so cool looking, I wish I could live there.
