The Last Voyage by Alexander Houlton

WEB-2-Swallow-1-1200x818

This series was created from the hull of an old sailboat named “Danubia”. I found Danubia in a boat graveyard of sorts in the bay area. I brought the 39ft boat back to Reno in pieces and dismantled it to make my “canvases”. Some of the designs I burned onto the inner side of the hull and other designs I used ink to do the line work and acyrlic paint for the color. Most of these pieces are large scale, averaging 3ft x 4ft and weighing around 50 pounds. Custom made mounting hardware comes with each piece. Email for pricing and shipping information.
