In 2003 Mr. O’Brien entered the marine art field, and his first entry to the prestigious Mystic International Marine Art Exhibition won an Award of Excellence. In 2010 he won Mystic’s Museum Purchase Award, which means that the Mystic Seaport Museum in Connecticut bought the painting for its permanent collection. O’Brien’s paintings have been used four times on the cover of Naval History magazine, which is published by The U.S. Naval Institute, and in 2007 he was the subject of a four-page cover article in Sea History magazine. O’Brien has delivered lectures about his work at various maritime venues, and in 2008, a production team making a documentary for The History Channel filmed him working in his studio.
