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.”

Flick Ford hooks almost every fish he paints.The resulting fish portraits are, on one hand classical reminiscent of 19th century color plates, on the other hand they are very contemporary, featuring minute detail, shimmering iridescence, eye-popping depth and a genuine spirit of life never before captured in fine art prints.The Steelhead (oncorhynchus mykiss), is the anadromous (migrating) form of rainbow trout, native to the western North American coast and the Pacific Coast of Asia.The Walleye (stizostedion vitreum) is the largest member of the Percidae family of perch.Widely distributed in North American lakes and rivers, walleyes are arguably the most popular northern freshwater fish.
