Victory in Action
GLOW - Gicleé prints - 11x14, 16x24, 20x30, 30x45, 38x50 printed on high-quality metallic paper and 100+ year-rated archival inks. The metallic paper gives the print a near 3D quality and the vibrance in unmatched.
GLOW - Canvas prints - 11x14, 16x24, 20x30, 30x45, 38x50 printed on archive quality canvas and 100+ year-rated archival inks. The print quality on these canvas prints are unlike anything you have seen, rivaled only by acrylic prints.
The Canvas and Prints are done in my studio so that I can control the quality of the product and deliver the best that is possible. Acrylic and Metal prints are something that I can order but would need to give a quote as the prices are changing too quickly and I strive to make my work accessible.
Any photo Any size - with exceptions depending on the orientation of the photo.
ABOUT THE SHOT
Victory in Action was taken during a massive winter swell in South Beach, Oregon. This was the last time the Victory was out in big surf and was piloted by CO Tom Malloy. This is a 52-foot motor lifeboat performing a training exercise. The Victory has since been decommissioned and is on display in Astoria, Or.
ABOUT THE VICTORY
Builder: Coast Guard Yard, Curtis Bay, Maryland

Draft: 6' 11"
Displacement: 75,715 pounds
Commissioned: June, 1956
Machinery: 2 General Motors 6-71 diesels; twin propellers
The steel-hulled 52-foot motor lifeboat was designed for offshore rescue under the worst sea conditions. They are self-righting and self-bailing and can carry up to 40 survivors. They were designed by the Coast Guard to replace the 52-foot wooden-hulled motor lifeboats and to complement the shorter-legged 36-foot and 44-foot motor lifeboats.
The 52-footers are constructed of steel. Among other features that increase their range and endurance, the craft is fitted with a complete galley. The boat is equipped with 250-gallon-per-minute pump for dewatering and fire fighting. These are the only Coast Guard vessels under 65-feet in length with names, a tradition started beginning with their 52-foot wooden-hulled predecessors. Beyond the search and rescue mission, they are also assigned to maritime law enforcement, marine environmental protection, and recreational boating safety duties.
The Victory was constructed by the Coast Guard Yard at Curtis Bay, Maryland and has been stationed at Yaquina Bay, Oregon, during her service career.

Quality is everything to me and I take the time to print these myself and inspect each one before they ship.
