On a recent trip to Boston, I was thrilled to get to see the USS Constitutin underway headed back to her berth at the Charlestown Naval Shipyard in Boston. I do have to confess to doing some editing of this image as there were several tugboats along side the beautiful vessel. I did paint them out as much as I could.
The USS Constitution, also known as Old Ironsides, is a wooden-hulled, three-masted heavy frigate of the United States Navy. Launched in 1797, she is the world's oldest commissioned naval vessel still afloat. The Constitution was retired from active service in 1881 and served as a receiving ship until being designated a museum ship in 1907. Currently, as a fully commissioned Navy ship, her crew of 60 officers and sailors participate in ceremonies, educational programs, and special events while keeping her open to visitors year round and providing free tours. The officers and crew are all active-duty Navy personnel, and the assignment is considered to be special duty. She is usually berthed at Pier 1 of the former Charlestown Navy Yard at one end of Boston's Freedom Trail.
I am an award-winning exhibiting artist in southwest Florida and my art has been exhibited in galleries in Florida, Georgia and North Carolina and is in collections nationwide. I create abstract photography, mixed media photo painting, acrylic mixed media, and acrylic paintings. Many would make great decorative throw pillows or shower curtains. I've even had a couple abstracts made into my personal cell phone covers. Please check out my Facebook page Doodleng Art by Sharon Eng for announcements and more information about my art. This image would be a good selection for business or corporate wall art and decor or in any home.
