I’ve been a fan of Alan Claude for many years but for some reason haven’t bought any of his artwork until now. While recently vacationing in Maine I saw him interviewed on a local TV show (207?) and decided now was the time to start buying his artwork. One of the first pieces I saw on his website was Sailing Ladies Delight and I was captivated by the stunning colors of the print: the red sail against the white lighthouse with the American flag flying above. But beyond the striking colors, the print resonated with me because the two ladies enjoying cocktails reminded me of good times spent with friends. Simply put, it made me smile. I’m not sure where I’m going to put the print in my house, but I know it will be someplace where I can see it often.
