“Painting is my way of understanding and sharing the story of special places I've visited,” says Julian Tablada. “I paint for the joy of creating beautiful art and hope my art adds beauty to people's lives.
"Sailing is my other love and much of my artwork is about maritime subjects depicting fragile natural and man-built treasures we must protect for future generations. I paint from the heart and only things I've personally experienced.
“I strive to give the viewer a glimpse of the deeper stories behind a scene. The story may be historical, adventurous, thrilling, peaceful, or just too beautiful not to paint. I paint things that are beautiful and which will bring joy and fond memories to those who view my work.”
Landscape and marine oil painter (But I do not have the patience to work in oils - I did a long time ago and prefer watercolors for their fluidity and speed to create.).
"Set the Mains'l Wide"-- This title describes what one sees in the painting. It also speaks to the history and technology of the Friendship Sloops. They were built as lobster fishing boats and had to be sailed shorthanded. The design of the sloops is such that the sailor can set the main wide and easy and the boat sails itself and thus frees up the sailor to tend to collecting and setting the traps. This back story is what I try to achieve in my paintings and this painting and title perfectly frame the story.
Winslow Homer is my favorite artist. He is able to make watercolors sing like no one else. His works are bright and happy and tell deep stories.
