John and Cindy are ''teak souls" - a word we coined to represent
ourselves as we moved aboard our live-aboard sailboat loaded with teak
(our dream from the start of our togetherness). Many boats
have teak soles (floors), but ours had the two of us, and we both love
teak, so .... there you go.
teaksouls.com began as the site of our adventures aboard
"Alexandra", our heavy double-ended home on the ocean. Those wonderful
days are now great memories and our web site became new. If
interested in what it's like to live on a boat or see some of the
places we've been, please visit the original home of
teaksouls.com now represents the works of John McLaren, Portrait and
Figure Artist. John has a passion for painting (people
especially) and studies watercolor pigments in great detail.
Recently Cindy began drawing with John and her work is included in the
'Life Art' Slide Show which has the work of both artists. John is
the real artist and Cindy mats, frames, and shares his paintings with
(in other words, she is his trusty sidekick).
