Art Notes

As I set my brush to canvas, I could not envisage a better tribute to courage and hope, than a lone clipper ship defiantly pushing through the ocean's fury against the backdrop of a clearing sky radiant with hope and light. I have always had a great respect for the clipper ship artists of the past for whom the sea represented the only connection to a new world and promises of a new day. Courageous Voyage is as much a tribute to a man like Montague Dawson whose early images of the sea inspired me, as it is a message to those mired in challenge and praying for opportunity and new beginnings. I trust that this image will encourage you to face the swells of life with a profound courage secure in the hope, instilled through providence and faith, that tomorrow is in His hands…that the storm is clearing…that the sun is ushering in a vibrant new day…and that your Courageous Voyage has set you upon the tides of remarkable ventures.
