This is a painting I made for my nephew, who really likes history and has become very interested in the Titanic's story recently. It's a popular subject and we all know what happened to the Titanic, but I usually feel more comfortable if I make a bit of research before picking up my brush. It always makes me feel the subject better. In this case it was especially important, because I had to deal with a tragedy of so many people... I wanted to approach the painting with a true compassion and respect and express the inevitable doom of the Titanic without any drastic scenes, as the picture was requested by and intended for a child.
