Santa Rosa
(Cruise ship leaving Haiti)

Artist: Carl G. Evers

Carl Evers (1907-2000) was a German born American illustrator who specialized in marine painting.

I've always loved Carl Evers' work, and not just because of his superb technique. I think it's because his paintings above all convey a love of both the sea and art, a combination which for me is irresistible.
