This painting of three immigrants with a sailing ship behind them actually came to me in a dream, the only time that ever happened. It is one of my first computer art pieces - I am still learning. This piece is for display only, it is not for sale.
The 19th century immigrant ship Jeanie Johnston brought Irish famine immigrants to North America. Unlike many "coffin ships," which lost many passengers on the sea voyage, the Jeanie Johnston had a doctor on board, and did not lose a single passenger or crew member on its voyages between Ireland and this continent. The ship was re-created in Ireland, and sailed to Canada and America, arriving in Florida on April 15, 2003. I made this digital image from various photographs, some artwork, and computer effects. It is what the ship would have looked like in a photograph of 150 years ago.

There were 11 crew members and about 27 passengers on her 2003 Atlantic voyage; many of the passengers were young people from the north and south of Ireland, who had worked on Jeanie's re-creation. Tom Kindre, the only American on the recent Atlantic voyage (and 80 years of age), has expressed the hope that once this visit was over, Jeanie would become a 'peace ship,' that is as a vessel with crewmembers from war-torn parts of the world (with culturally divided peoples forming her crew).
