I was asked to create a painting of the yacht ‘Sealise’ owned by the treasurer of of the B.C. squadron of Royal Naval Sailing Association. The yacht, a Peterson, was originally owned by the the lady’s parents and was a huge part of her life. Some years ago, her parents had sailed ‘Sealise’ across the Atlantic from Vancouver to Denmark and return. Truly an epic voyage. With so much family history, a close friend commissioned the work as a surprise Christmas present. I am assured it now hangs in a place of honour.
