Piece description from the artist
This is one of my favorite racing boats. My friend owns and sails this boat. I met Klass at the America's Cup and from there we have been friends ever since. I love this boat because of the classic beauty and designs. The imagery represents teamwork, goals, achievement, and success. The water represents the challenges we all face. Persistence, perseverance, and resolve cuts through the waves. Endurance prevails to the finish line. The crew is steadfast. This image and painting is my ideal for the relationships found and forged in teamwork.
