The Customers

".. the real highlight for me was the reaction of the audience when your painting was presented. Clearly the guests were aware that we were presenting some form of picture as the rear of the frame was evident, but the sheer gasp of amazement when I turned it round to present was truly amazing and so uplifting. Thank you so very much." (Letter from Exxon Mobil executive after the naming ceremony of the Pavel Chernysh - a ship Michael painted in 2006.

 

 

Michael's open seas surge and dip with a movement and transparency that is based on his observations and experiences as a lifeboat crewman.

 

 

Michael's boats look right as he sails and maintains two antique dinghies and a classic sailing boat.
