Detail from "Velsheda, superyacht, on charter"

This painting was a commission, that turned into some fine sailing and a life long friendship.

Produced to be presented as a retirement gift to the M.D. by CPC (United Kingdom) Limited / Best Foods Inc.

The company regularly chartered Velsheda during Cowes Week Royal Regatta.

A group of the directors were to be shown on her stern deck with the skipper and crew, each to be clearly identifiable, in effect, mini portraits.

You could commission a similar painting.
