Custom whaling piece by Pennsylvania Artist Kolene Spicher

Let's Take This Show on the Road 

From Nantucket to Staten Island...

This custom piece is painted around my New England Whaling themes that I love to paint.  "Let's Take This Show on the Road," is a one-of-a-kind piece of art featured in an old barn wood frame from Lancaster County.  The side of the frame was signed Rufus Hoover, who is an Amish man in his 80s. 

Three-D look
Across the bottom of this painting are various panels protruding outward that makes my whaling painting have a 3-D look.

I love to paint in this genre.  Take a look at this picture below:   Can you see the 3-D look.  Even my whaling man looks like he is ready to jump off a fin! 

More 3-D 
This whale is part of a show.  It swims to Newport from Nantucket and then to Narragansett and on to Staten Island and points south.  So much fun!

The frame is wonderfully weathered and great periwinkle blue.  The color theme is very current and looks Cottage.  

Huber the Whale 
I have a few other paintings that I am working on currently, including, a mermaid and another ship whaling scene with lots of RED.

Here she is in her ENTIRETY.  I love the red drape across the top!  
Let me know if you have any questions!  

Thanks for looking.

I have a question. Why do I love this so much?
I love the red curtain too. You are amazing.
Years ago we decided to buy a large painting from Cam on Nantucket. I wanted a whale scene. Jan wanted the tall yellow girl.
Jan won. As usual. I love yellow girl but still pine for the whale. Oh well.
