Shipwreck Art

For some reason, I get a lot of hits on this blog for a couple of posts about shipwreck paintings. Go figure. So here's where I pander to the masses. I love these recent paintings by Nadia Hebson. There's also a great old engraving I scanned, and loads of shipwreck paintings from the 1800s when ships were plunging like the current Nasdaq standings...
