Finding great cover art for my books has always been a challenge. I wanted to use a picture of a sailing ship for cover of Drake’s Botanist. Not only did I find a superb picture of an Elizabethan era ship, but it actually was a picture of the Golden Hind!
I was able to use only a portion of the late Wilson Hurley’s painting, so the complete work follows.
Please see his website at www.wilson-hurley.com to see many more examples of his tremendous work.
Thank you again to Rosalyn Hurley for her permission to use Mr. Hurley’s artwork.
