Pilot Schooner "Gracie S.", Becalmed off Alcatraz
by Christopher Blossom

Ships navigating into and out of the harbors around San Francisco in the late nineteenth century were typically met by a pilot, a local seaman familiar with the shallow waters around the coastline. After directing the ship through the waters, the pilot would return to his schooner and await the next ship. The pilot schooner "Gracie S." traveled waters around San Francisco from the nineteenth to the early twentieth century, tirelessly aiding larger ships in their passage.

While working on this painting, artist Chris Blossom said, “I was really interested by the play of light on the sail against the dark blue sky, and by the contrast of the boat against the water.” The artist used the original plans for the ship "Gracie S." as a reference, as well as shots of the shoreline around Alcatraz. The pilot schooner is a striking tribute to ocean, sky and the labors of men.

Afternoon Arrival, Gloucester
by Christopher Blossom

“I have always enjoyed painting the arrival and departure of vessels,” says artist Christopher Blossom.“ Regardless of the excitement or anticipation of the voyage to come, when setting out there is an underlying level of apprehension.The ocean can be unforgiving. With the satisfaction of a successfully completed trip, there is always a feeling of relief mixed with thoughts of homecoming.” The Greenwich Workshop is proud to celebrate Blossom’s homecoming, as he returns to his collectors with his first Fine Art Limited Edition Canvas, Afternoon Arrival, Gloucester. The artist captures a moment in the early 20th century as the fishing schooner "Monitor" slides quietly into Gloucester, Massachusetts’ inner harbor in the late afternoon.
