Fine Art Custom Yacht Portraits


Since moving aboard Forever Exploring in the Fall of 2015, I have begun to see a boat as more than a piece of equipment.   For us, it’s our home and she embraces our everyday life, sharing our joys and any sorrows.  She is our protector in bad weather, or the gracious host creating memories when our kids or friends come to visit.  I understand that your yacht or favorite skiff is so personal to you and is a living part of your life.  A custom yacht portrait helps evoke those boating memories when you are not on the water.   My goal with your original yacht portrait is two fold.  First, to create a painting that is representational of your boat inspiring those nautical memories when not aboard, and second, to result in a work that is dynamic and passionate on its own.  The viewer should admire the subject, your yacht, but also the painting. 

The best custom yacht portraits result from having more than one photo to choose from. Together we will discuss qualities that make a great painting such as: composition, depth and gradation of value. The photos need to be high resolution.
Commission Fee:
The painting will be on a museum series panel that is archival and eco-friendly.  The finished painting is sealed with varnish.  I can help you with framing through my wholesale suppliers if you like.
Suggested sizes:


30x40  40x40  36x48                          $4,500.00   

Other custom sizes are available. 


Fees do not include framing, sales tax, or shipping.  A deposit of 20% will secure a position on my portrait calendar.  The balance is due when the portrait is shipped.


After painting family and executive oil prtraits for many years, I am finding new passion in custom yacht portraits.

I was thrilled when Kadey-Krogen Yachts used my portrait for the cover of their 40th Anniversary Waypoints Magazine.
