The town of Nantucket is the finest architectural and environmental example of a late 18th and early 19th-century New England seaport town still in existence. The island and its inhabitants were the dominate players in the growth of America’s whaling industry. Herman Melville wrote,” Two thirds of this globe are the Nantucketer's. For the sea is his; he owns it, as Emperors own empires." His character, Captain Ahab, was an islander.

The name is said to mean either "in the midst of waters," or "far away island." Don Demers Nantucket Twilight Fine Art Limited Edition Canvas captures all the mysticism and romance of this legendary offshore port. This work of art captures the harbor at its most alluring time: during the golden hour at the day’s end as the sun falls below the distant horizon and the final warm rays of light are cast across the island landscape.

Don Demers is one of a handful of premier maritime painters working today. Crewing aboard schooners, square-riggers and other traditional craft have provided both the foundation for his technical expertise and the vision to transfer his first-hand experience to the canvas. He is a Fellow of the American Society of Marine Artists, a member of the Guild of Boston Artists, the California Art Club, and a signature member of the Plein Air Painters of America. He has won a record seventeen awards at the Mystic International Marine Art Exhibition. His illustrations have been recognized by the Museum of American Illustration four times in their national competition representing the finest examples of work in the field. He conducts workshops for artists and lectures on his art and maritime experiences, both here and abroad.
