Ocean Permit
Oil on Canvas, 36" x 27"

Prints on paper or canvas available
Framed Original Available

Ocean Permit is a looser interpretation of the way I normally use the paint. I like this painting a lot and find it fun to look at because of the lack of detail. A view looking up out in the open ocean like you might see off the Keys fishing the permit spawn. I've seen thousands of permit schooled up out there but it's only fun for a while because they're so easy to catch. Many a record has been set fishing in these schools every spring. In my opinion those records shouldn't count. The original oil painting is currently on display in the 19th National Exhibition of the American Society of Marine Artists in the Albany NY Institute of History and Art. There are only 113 artists worldwide who have been selected to participate in this curated exhibition. The show will be up until December 31st of 2023 and then travels to the Minnesota Marine Art Museum from Jan to May 12th, 2024.

Vaughn Cochran

Regarded as one of the best and more innovative artists in the world of
fishing art, Vaughn’s current groups of pencil drawings, watercolors, mixed
media, acrylic and oil paintings would be classified as contemporary sporting
art and represents the last 20 years of his work. He was trained as a fine
artist, taught at a university and his portfolio now spans over 40 years.

A multifaceted artist, he is skilled in many mediums including painting in
oil and watercolor, ceramic sculpture, art pottery, printmaking, intaglio,
silkscreen, woodcarving, batik and metal working and casting.

His contemporary sporting art reflects the world of professional fishing
where Vaughn was a fly-fishing guide for many years. “In my travels, I always
had my camera and sketch book”, says Vaughn “I’ve filled several journals with
ideas and notes for paintings and sculptures that revolve around fish and life
on the water.”
