A group of sailboats at rest in a boat yard on a peaceful afternoon. "These sailboats wait patiently for their owners to launch them on the waters of Sarasota Bay and return them to the glory of days gone by," says Fernando. Soft, warm light lends the scene a nostalgic, memory-like feeling. Part of Fernando's signature series of nautical scenes capturing the watercraft, wildlife and landscape of his native Florida. He regularly travels, making sketches, taking notes and shooting photographs to later reference in his studio. The result is detailed, intimate paintings that radiate the stunning light and tropical breezes of the Sunshine State.
