Artist Keith Thomson explains that this painting is based on the true story of English Capt. Bartholomew Sharp, who, in 1681 captured a ship, El Santo Rosario, that carried, as he wrote in his diary, "a prize of the lady called Donna Joanna Constanta... the beautifullest creature that my eyes ever beheld in the South Seas." He had to leave her behind, however, as he and his crew were being pursued by an armada of pirate hunters. "At least that's what he told her," Keith says with a smile.

Keith Thomson

Birmingham, Alabama

Keith Thomson is a mixed-media artist whose art is packed with wit, humor, and ingenuity. He began his artistic career as a political cartoonist in the 90’s, a background that is reflected in the sharp storytelling of his artwork. His portfolio relishes in the escapism offered by art; each painting, though realistic in style, presents a scenario with a surreal and, at times, ironic twist. To begin a work, he sketches out his idea using an animation software. Then, he transfers the sketch onto the canvas and finally starts to layer oil paint. In addition to painting, he writes spy novels and nonfiction articles.
