Live on board?

“Have you ever lived on one (a boat or square rig ship) for a long period of time?” I was asked today by film maker Frank Muller.
Thought it might be fun to share my answer with you which reminds me to restart writing the requested book about my life and work.
Charlestown
Charlestown, the port, ‘October Evening’, Cornwall available as a fine art print.
I’ve owned boats most of my life, built quite a few, repaired many more too.
I’ve not lived onboard for long periods.
I don’t really fancy that unless there is a good reason.

Love Schooners ?

Painting schooners is always a pleasure for me, more so in this instance.
The beautiful working Schooners Racing, Rhoda Mary and Katie Clewett commissioned by Frank Trebilcock, a descendant of the families who built the three renowned vessels two schooners and a sloop.
This painting is now owned with pride by his son and definitely not for sale although fine art prints are still available.
