Canning Dock Liverpool 1880

My painting of a barque which I believe was built by one of my ancestors at PEI. The tug is one of Jolliffes  and may not be too accurate as I have no photo to refer to.

I see the "moment in time" spirit of your research for your "Canning Dock Liverpool 1880".
I'll call you a history artist. The total product of your picture is that the viewer can indeed
stand there in Liverpool in 1880. Beautiful.

I have been creating marine "metal sculpture" art work for over 50 years. Like yourself,
ships are number one. I designed and built wall sculptures for banks and corporation offices.

Here is one of my first attempts to build a Dutch Merchant using sheet steel. It was the
only one I made as a "solid". Lots of work. . .

 

Again, thank you for the inspiration Fred,
Michael

Wonderful piece of work Michael, I admire your skill and talent. Your description of history artist is about right, I mostly paint stuff I have been involved in or have knowledge of, I also tend only to model boats I have sailed on so I can get them right.
Cheers.......Fred
