A 36 x 48 Oil on Canvas awaiting final detail work starting in August 2016




The year was 1899 ...

and Charlie Barr,  in command of SV Columbia was clearly  the winner of all five races defending the Cup from Sir Thomas Lipton,a challenger
aboard Shamrock. The painting took on a life of  it's own involving a year long search and trip from Washington to the Atlantic Coast.




Water is always the last item to finish in one of my paintings. A trip to New England has been a great help to get the water right.
The Atlantic near New York  is quite different from the Pacific waters in the my more northerly Puget Sound.

The painting was finished Sunday 7 August 2016


The title " Boston Globe Reporting" emerged from attempting to understand the cluster of flags on the stern of the Moran Company
Andrew W Booth New York.  Moran is still an active tug service here in Portsmouth.

A  rather extensive search revealed nothing but by chance, a photograph was found of another vessel at a similar event that made
the visual connection to finally identify the banner was from the Boston Globe.


Of additional note, Gugliemo Marconi reported  the races  by some of the first ever ship to shore radio transmissions aboard S.S. Ponce.
