From Waterside Park in Norfolk one can catch a ferry across to several ports in Portsmouth. They are cute fake paddle-wheelers and a fun thing to see on the water. I made this as a study for a larger painting with the General Dynamics dock in the background complete with Navy ship in dry-dock and the numerous tower cranes of the facility. I'm glad I kept this simple and only show the ferry.
Its oil on Canvas and matted for framing with a mat and glass (not included). The patron could have it mounted and framed without glass if they so choose. The canvas has a very slight wrinkle on the bottom left that shows with oblique light as I've tried to display.
It is signed with my JHA (John Henry Angin) monogram and is accompanied with a hand-written, signed letter from the artist.
My name is Jack Anglin (JackAnglin.com) and I have painted almost all my life, making thousands of paintings and portraits. I am now painting full time in Virginia Beach and Norfolk, as well as traveling and following several visual interests. My artwork is eclectic and I am very capable working in great detail or also with expressive, colorful, deft brush strokes. I enjoy plein air work and studio painting and occasionally work entirely from memory. Subject matter that attracts me ranges from floral pieces to landscapes, marine subjects to religious and spiritual imagery, as well as figurative images and, of course, portraiture. My work is found in galleries but I'll be selling more online and connecting with a larger audience here and on my websites. Thank you for taking an interest in me and my work. It is a great honor to have my paintings bought and hanging in your home --it is the greatest compliment one can give an artist! I hope you will follow me and keep an eye on what I am up to in the art world.
