"Lifelong Sailor and Fine Art Oil Painter - Forty plus years and thousands of sea miles in several oceans have given me a unique perspective of our watery planet. I always dreamed I would one day paint my muse and do what ever I could to help protect her and all her living creatures from harm. For each painting sold from this site I will donate 20% of the sale price to help in this endeavor. My daughter-in-law is a Marine Scientist in Santa Barbara. Together we will decide where my donations can have the most meaningful impact. "
