Outrigger Art

I recently acquired this print of a painting, by Andi Merkins, of a fishing outrigger in the Cook Islands.  Marine art like aviation art does not allow for much artistic license, the details need to be anatomically correct, as is the case with this painting.

This water color of my own Te Wa was painted by Harmen Hielkema several years ago.  There are more of his canoe paintings at his art blog:
