dream boat

I am always amazed at what floats one's boat let alone literally how a boat manages to stay afloat.
I consider boats, cars, trains, plains as pure transportation but according to my 18 year old son who is vehicularly obsessed, I am wrong.  He has always been a dreamer and I imagine one day he will own some mega yacht or formula one race car.
Men and boats or men and their cars have provided many clients fodder for gifting.  If you cannot afford to wrap a red ribbon on the actual dream boat or sports car, then perhaps giving a gift of art of said mode of travel will be a nice surprise for your loved one.  

A framed work of art is everlasting and adds a sporty touch to any office, stairwell or foyer.
The above dream boat pve design work of art was a gift from a daughter to her father which was given shortly after she gave a home pve design work of art to her Mother a few weeks prior.


Do you have dreams perhaps of one day owning a boat, a sports car or a home?

I know it's been a while since I've been by. Your work is always amazing when I see it. Very refreshing from the abstract art that has burst on the scene as of late :-) Happy weekend!

Trying to read this on my new kindle & I thought I was seeing things when the view slipped from the lovely watercolor to the photo. I reduced the page & realised I am not "seeing" things.

Boys and their toys... I'd take a picture of an Astin Martin any day (or the real thing!) Happy weekend, PVE!

A dream boat indeed! This time of year in Seattle, many boat owners join the Christmas Ship flotilla and sail from beach to beach in Lake Washington and Puget sound -- I've always wanted to bob along in a boat some year, instead of watching from shore. Maybe we'll have to take out our kayaks one of these years!

Have a merry weekend!

One of my dreams is to actually live on a boat for awhile! I would love to do it when the kids are grown, maybe for just a year! Guess I need to buy that boat first!

I am one of those people that cannot stand anything with an engine! But your water color is delightful!
Best,

PVE,

Lovely thoughts floating away somewhere exotic. You know what they say about boats...the two greatest days for a boat owner is the first day they own the boat and the day they sell it,,,too funny.

Lovely illustrated boat probably the best way to have one is in a lovely frame on the wall,
