The Lady Washington Brig
Original pastel painting of the square-rigged sailing vessel, the Lady Washington, seen at anchor in the Pacific Northwest of the USA. My thanks to Michael Ryan for permission to use his wonderful reference photograph. Image size 13.5" x 19.5" (35cm x 50cm), Panpastels and pastel pencils on Pastelmat board (unframed). The first Lady Washington was a 90-ton brig named after Martha Washington. She was the first American-flagged vessel to round Cape Horn, making landfall in Oregon in 1788. She took part in the fur trade and carried tea and porcelain across the Pacific from China. She was the first US ship to reach Japan, but was lost off the Philippines in 1797. The present Lady Washington is a full scale replica, launched in 1989 and sails up and down the coast of California, Oregon and Washington, offering educational programs.

The Old Mill, Colton.
A picturesque view of the old mill at Colton near Leeds when it was a crumbling neglected ruin before it was refurbished. This small painting is the first version of the larger painting that is on show in my gallery which I feel turned out rather well considering the speed at which it was painted. It is painted on a stretched canvas with the painting continuing around the sides so no framing is required but it could be framed if you so wish.
