Flying Colors


SKU: N/A Categories: ,


This piece works well as a set with Across the Boundless Sea. In both, there are parts of party posters I found in Mykonos, Greece. We ripped them off the telephone poles that were stacked thick, advertising the famous parties of Mykonos. If you like Sailing Art, and are also a fan of seascapes, these are for you! The deep indigo colors of the Greek Islands run throughout both pieces. The sails were made from pages of an old book The Romance of the Sea, so upon close inspection, you’ll find part of stories about the history of sailing. The strong contrast of the navy and white make a nice addition to any nautical inspired coastal home. The phrase Flying Colors originated around the 16th century, when ships would return to port with their flags or “colors” either raised high or lowered to signify that the ship had either been successful or defeated. I also like the title because it refers to the colors of the sails, flying across the ocean.
