Oil Paintings & Prints by a Chesapeake Bay Captain
Captain John has had an opportunity to experience and appreciate a way of life that may soon disappear forever. Since 2012, he has been creating, through painting, a variety of works based on his observations, memories, and experiences.
His mission is to "depict through art, the culture of a life working on the water, as well as the beauty of the Chesapeake Bay and Eastern Shore". Captain John's oil paintings are for sale as originals or prints.

A Painted Trunk
In adition to his traditional oil paintings on canvas, Captain John has also tried some more uncommon works of art to challenge his skill. In 2015 he painted a trunk with a waterview on both the top and sides to denote above-water and below-water.
The item was auctioned in support of The Queen Anne's County Arts Council. When not on the water, Captain John continues to pursue his goal to memorialize the watermans culture through his art, but has expanded his focus to include other natural landscapes.
