Sea Honey

Painting is about 15.75″X17.75″, acrylic on oil or acrylic stretched canvas, painted over an existing painting.


Text on this one says ‘Bees At Sea Provide Honey For Long Sea Voyages!!!”

This is a breen seadoodle, where I’ve turned another old man into a sea captain, although here, his beard is made of bees. I used the word Sea twice on either side of his head, more for balance than anything else, though it is obviously bad writing form.

I signed this one, Eddie Pelbam.  Pelbam is a generic name signed to formulaic sea captain portraits that have been pumped out by the tens of thousands in the US, Mexico, and lately, China. If you look at Pelbam portraits, the signatures often have quite different hand-writing style. I own 4 unbreened Pelbams at the moment and breen them from time to time.  You can’t walk through a thrift store here in Massachusetts without tripping over several.  I love my Pelbams very much and they have provided me with gallons of sea captain inspiration over the years.

Anyway, this is a busy bee breen, a great gift for that deranged beekeeper or fisherman you know – just the thing to push him over the edge at Christmas! Starting off at a penny! Ebenezar Scrooge would bid if he wasn’t fictional!
