Thank you for visiting Dick Levesque's Coast Guard and Marine Art site. This site was created several years ago and has steadily evolved into a respected marine painting web site with over 30,000 visitors to date. Dick has been published nationally and his art is in collections throughout the U.S. and overseas. We appreciate your support and continuing comments.

Through your comments and suggestions he has created a wonderful array of Coast Guard Art, which takes one from the present back to the days of the Revenue Cutter Service. Besides being able to depict the feeling of life at sea his research is meticulous and time consuming. Each painting is thoroughly researched including, where possible, talking to those involved. I think you will agree that his passion for accuracy is top notch.

There is a new section that includes an extension of most of his art in the form of sublimation coffee mugs, mouse pads and the soon to be added Decor Series of Levesque & Cosgrove.

For you Coast Guard members you will notice an ever-expanding page that is specific and unique to the U.S. Coast Guard. Plenty of gift ideas all reasonably priced and ready for your personalization.

Again, thank you for your kind responses and remember that every item, whether an original work of art, limited edition print, a customized mug or accessory is 100% guaranteed.

If you are a Coast Guard fan you might also like to look at our other website containing photographs of older Cutters, Aircraft, Stations and an extensive gallery of the USRC Bear which have never before been published. All are located at: www.coastguardpics.com.

ARTIST STATEMENT

As a self taught artist who has lived the seafaring life, I am not encumbered by formal art schooling or techniques. I am thus able to experiment and paint freely without fear of criticism and to convey my feelings through the medium. As a child viewing Winslow Homer's Gulf Stream, and later in the fine maritime art of Carl Evers, my interest has been nestled in the seafarers way of life. It seems that I've come full circle, as the passion for painting realistic marine art has intensified. There are times, with brush in hand that I am completely consumed by the moment, hearing each creak of the hull, and feeling the rise of the swells as well as the damp fragrance of the early morning fog.

I love what I do, and do what I love. I paint from the heart.

"Art washes from the soul the dust of everyday life." ~ Pablo Picasso
