Donna was inspired to paint the Blue Moon Vessel after her many visits to Singapore.
Donna’s love of architecture and light, brought her attention to the large sea faring vessels which work the seas and oceans. They attracted her in the same way the lonely farms of the Karoo attracted her, displaying isolated communities going about their daily lives.
About Fishing Vessels
A fishing vessel is a boat or ship used to catch fish in the sea, or on a lake or river. Many different kinds of vessels are used in commercial, artisanal and recreational fishing.
According to the FAO, there are currently (2004) four million commercial fishing vessels. About 1.3 million of these are decked vessels with enclosed areas. Nearly all of these decked vessels are mechanised, and 40,000 of them are over 100 tons. At the other extreme, two-thirds (1.8 million) of the undecked boats are traditional craft of various types, powered only by sail and oars. These boats are used by artisan fishers.
About Prints on Canvas
Many of Donna’s artworks are offered as fine art digital prints, which have been skilfully photographed and printed on large format inkjet printers. These prints are limited edition and numbered bottom left and signed bottom right. They are printed on the highest quality canvasses. The printing process has employed fade resistant, HP Vivera archival inks, which boast a 100+ year fade-proof promise.
These artist prints are offered in varying sizes. Also the prints on canvas can be provided stretched over a wooden frame or rolled in a core for easy shipping. Lastly, each canvas print is treated with a high quality scratch resistant matt art sealant.
