L. Douglas Horman, artist, sailor, friend. Passed away September 4th 2015.This is my tribute portrait. Rest in peace my friend.

Brilliant as usual.  I remember the portraits I tried to do in school, they looked more like the walking dead.  Just as well I stuck to boats.


Hi Harmen and Julie

It was lovely to spend some precious time with you both at Doug and Rosemary's the other day. It's still very hard to imagine what life is going to be like without Doug, but I want to tell you that having the wonderful portrait that you did will help. We will always remember the dear man that he was and that he's still with us in spirit every time we look at his picture.

Thank you, it's very special.

Dear Harmen

It is clear to me that some men are driven by divine purpose out of state of love for another human being.

In this I am very sure that is exactly what I see in your portrait of Douglas.  From it I can feel the scrutiny of his kind awareness and gentle disposition that was his and his alone.

Good on you mate and thank you!


Doug Schmuck

Hi Harmen-
   I just wanted to say that your drawing of Doug is fabulous.  We both thought it portrays him perfectly right down to his denim shirt, looking over the top of his glasses and hair a bit windblown-!!!!!  I am sure Rosie will treasure it.  Regards Larry 

I make portraits like this one on commission. I work on high quality paper, from life or from photographs, pencil, coloured pencil, paint.
