After developing a respect for, and seeing the awesomeness of the clipper ship, I embarked on a passionate pursuit and study of these tall majestic wonders. I began my first clipper painting and by the time it was finished, my focus and passion for them had increased all the more. This clipper is called "The Lightning" and was built by Donald MacKay in Boston in the early 1850's. It represents the "clear skies ahead" for us, as we put our trust in God through the various storms and trials of life. The original has sold, however, beautiful Limited Edition Giclees are available in three sizes 18" x 27," 24" x 36," 30" x 45"
