A Flick of the Wrist: Flick Ford demonstrates both his fishing and his painting talent on Nantucket
Fans of Flick Ford will be interested to know about the latest creation out of the studio of this master of marine life portraiture. After a terrific success with the sale of “Betsy,” the 4 x 10.5’ great white shark watercolor that was exhibited this year at the prestigious art fair Art Palm Beach, Flick is taking on a new challenge this spring. He has been hard at work on a sperm whale of similar proportions, which he expects to complete by the end of the first week in June. Below is an image one of the artist’s preliminary drawings. The first of its kind out of Flick’s studio, the sperm whale will be offered at $34,000.
We are also excited to report that Flick will be on island June 16th through the 19th to do some fishing off Nantucket’s shores. During that week, he will be doing an in-gallery painting demonstration during which he will complete work on his next piece, a bluefish watercolor. Mark your calendar to see Flick in action, and we’ll keep you posted on the details!
