Hull Paintings: A Photo Project

hull #1

Four months ago we started looking for a sailboat driving around in a 1988 RV, going from marina to marina all over Florida. We have met many boats, in and out of the ocean, and I started photographing their hulls, mainly fibreglass,  in various states of damage and repair. I have noticed accidental abstract images, a collaboration between Human and Nature, where shapes and colours have created true works of art. I find in them, and you might as well, do not be surprised, winter landscapes, galaxies, endless poppy fields somewhere in Flanders, the sad face of a ghost, fishes lost in the sea, and other creatures.

  1. I really like your photos, they could have been fabulous paintings!

    • Norunn, Thank you so much! Yes, they will be, this is the next part of my Hull Paintings project- oil on canvas “reproductions” based on the photos. Can’t wait to start painting!

    Sometime the art is to find beauty where not suspected! Fine art Mira!

  5. Wow, I’ve seen a lot of spotty hulls but never seen the beauty in them. I’ll never look at them the same way again. Thank you for letting me see through your eyes.
