Daniel Price is a self-taught artist. He has developed a reputation for producing almost photographic realism in his watercolor paintings. While he paints several subjects, including landscapes, lighthouses and racing scenes, his primary subject matter is military in nature – both Naval, and Aviation.
Daniel’s work has become extremely well known, and sought after, especially with the military. His finely detailed paintings reflect his passion for both history and the sea. Careful research into all aspects of each painting insures remarkable accuracy and detail. Sailboat racing experience, and time at sea on a square rigger, several submarines and an aircraft carrier give his work the tension and force that bring his scenes to life.
Daniel has won numerous awards for his work, and is included in both private and corporate collections in both the US and abroad. He has had work hanging in galleries throughout New England, including the Mystic Maritime Museum and Slater Museum. He has done extensive work for the military, and has work hanging in the wardrooms of a many warships, both surface and submarines – from several countries’ navies. His naval and aviation paintings are in the collections of numerous active duty and retired personnel of all ranks, from Enlisted to Admirals. His work graces the walls of several offices in the Pentagon, as well as all the submarine bases in the US, and Guam. Daniel was commissioned by the Secretary of the Navy to paint the official Commissioning Portrait of the USS Seawolf (SSN21), and by the Governor of Connecticut for the official Commissioning Portrait of the USS Connecticut (SSN 22), as well as the commissioning portrait of the USS Jimmy Carter, and the Christening painting of the USS North Dakota. His work has been given to President H. W. Bush, President Jimmy Carter, Vice President Dick Cheney, First Lady Laura Bush, Governor John Roland, and many visiting dignitaries from around the world. Daniel, his wife Lynne and their pet menagerie live in East Lyme, Connecticut.
