Spirit of Gentleness

Spirit, Spirit of gentleness,

blow through the wilderness, calling and free,

Spirit, Spirit of restlessness,

stir me from placidness, wind, wind on the sea.


Words by James K. Manley


Painting using inks, acrylics, graphite and Pitt pastels on paper - TP


On October, 31st 2008 I made a decision to dedicate a painting to every person and animal that died in the sinking of RMS Titanic April, 15th 1912. This resulted in a great deal of research and becoming acquainted with many interesting people, who have supported my endeavours. I then realised that people had died during the building of this magnificent ship and decided to add them to my list. In total I painted 1,600 paintings.

I share some of the paintings with you and will be uploading works from this collection to mark the 100th Anniversary of Titanic’s sinking which falls on April 15th 2012.

A Special Thanks To Pryere For Photographing All My Paintings
