This large (39"x33") and unusual acrylic painting of racing sailboats captures the excitement of swiftly cutting through waves and wind. The artist has created the sky and water with an extremely inventive and unusual technique which adds a dynamic layer of motion to the scene. It is titled Sailing and signed on the front by Bill Miller (1916- ) who is a noted mid-century avant-garde illustrator/photographer and designer. The title and the artist's information is on the back, on a hand written label.
The painting appears to be from around 1970. It is acrylic on a hardboard panel, and mounted on an artist-made rustic frame. There are nail holes in the edges, which add to the painting's contemporary feel, and, along with the frame, give it an unstudied, casual charm.
The panel size is 36"x30", the outer frame size is 39"x33" Both the frame and the painting show some aging, but are in good condition.
