Peter Iredale's Sunset

'Peter Iredale's Sunset'
18" x 10"
oil on gessoboard
The sailing vessel 'Peter Iredale' ran aground on the northern coast of Oregon in 1906. The crew of 27 were all rescued, and the ship sustained minimal damage. Before it could be towed safely back to sea, the ship became embedded in the sand, and the Peter Iredale was there to stay.
My family and I love to visit what remains of old Peter; this is a sunset scene from a few winters ago.
