The Windswept Coast
by Don Demers

“Ocean Point, the setting of The Windswept Coast, is the primary reason that I am a marine artist,” says Don Demers.“As a boy, in the heyday of the Wyeths, this is where I spent my summers and was introduced to nautical subjects and their lore. I built ship models in my grandfather’s workshop by day. At night my grandmother would sew their sails for them while my grandfather and I played cribbage. All of this led to a lifelong love of the sea and everything around it.”

The scene in The Windswept Coast, shows Boothbay Harbor peninsula as it appears today, but I painted it with 19th century schooners (from Maine’s famous Nickerson Fleet) heading off to the fishing banks near Canada.What fascinates me is how little the coast changes, its timelessness intrigues me, allowing me to envision what the coast must have looked like a hundred years ago when these majestic vessels were a common sight.”

Afternoon Arrival, Gloucester
by Christopher Blossom

“I have always enjoyed painting the arrival and departure of vessels,” says artist Christopher Blossom.“Regardless of the excitement or anticipation of the voyage to come, when setting out there is an underlying level of apprehension.The ocean can be unforgiving.With the satisfaction of a successfully completed trip, there is always a feeling of relief mixed with thoughts of homecoming.” The Greenwich Workshop is proud to celebrate Blossom’s homecoming, as he returns to his collectors with his first Fine Art Limited Edition Canvas, Afternoon Arrival, Gloucester.The artist captures a moment in the early 20th century as the fishing schooner Monitor slides quietly into Gloucester, Massachusetts’ inner harbor in the late afternoon.

A Fire to Be Lighted
by Alan Bean

“The Falcon is on the Plain at Hadley.” These were the first words heard back on Earth when Dave Scott and Jim Irwin made their landing in July 1971. Falcon had alighted them on a scientific bonanza.As Dave looked around from Falcon’s overhead hatch, he thought, “No place on Earth has such a concentration of features.”There were mountains taller than Everest (relative to their surroundings) and a meandering
gorge a mile across, a thousand feet deep and seventy miles long.

Lunar exploration had come a long way since Neil and Buzz made their first moonwalk just two years earlier. Dave and Jim had the lunar rover, a moon car that would make possible five times the total
surface exploration of the three previous missions combined; and they had improved space suit backpacks which allowed them to stay outside their spacecraft nearly twice as long as any of us who had flown earlier.
I have painted Dave Scott, a good friend and skilled explorer, at the pinnacle of his astronaut career. In his own words, “We went to the Moon as trained observers in order to gather data, not only with our instruments on board, but also with our minds. Plutarch, a wise man who lived a long time ago, expressed the feelings of the crew of Apollo 15 when he wrote ‘the mind is not a vessel to be filled, but a fire to be lighted.’”
