A HALF-HULL SHIP PAINTING

I am linking this to Smiling Sally's Blue Monday and Cindy at My Romantic Home for Show & Tell Friday.

     This is a half hull painting that I got at auction many years ago. The auction was held one a Wednesday in the evening.  By the time they got to the art, there were only about 5 people left. They put this with 4 other paintings and I got them all for $5.00.  I kept this one and another very large one of a docked fishing boat and sold the rest. This is also a large painting, but unusual in that it is a painting with a 3-D half ship attached to the painting.  It is 36" by 24" and is signed Capt. Howe. I have not been able to find anything about the artist. This hangs center stage in my dining room. The ship has been carved of wood and the sails are fabric. I love my blues, browns and white as you can see from all my post.
