Stranded Ship

In this impressionistic oil painting, the artist vividly portrays the aftermath of a hurricane near the South Bridge in New Smyrna Beach. The scene unfolds as a once-sturdy boat lies battered and stranded upon the shore. The destructive winds and tumultuous waves of the hurricane have brought the vessel to its resting place, its hull damaged and sails tattered.
Despite the destruction, the painting also conveys a sense of resilience and strength, as the boat's presence serves as a testament to human endeavors facing the unpredictability of nature. It becomes a poignant reminder of the immense power of natural forces and the fragility of human-made structures in the face of such tempestuous events.
