Sailboat Art

Maddie and I visited an outdoor sculpture garden of mammoth proportions. One of the installations caught my eye from a distance.

It looked like the hull of a sailboat from a distance! As we closer, I was more and more certain that it was in fact a sailboat hull.

When we got up close and read the plaque, I was proven correct! The artist took a retired sailboat and painted a mermaid on the side of the hull. This installation was in stark difference to the other sculptures, mostly metal giants that towered over the landscape; whereas this one floated on along on its small island in a protected lake. No modification needed to be made to the shape of the hull, as the hull of a sailboat is already graceful and pleasing to the eye. All that separates our sailboats from this work of art is a paint job!
