You've gotten this cold icey naval operation painting down pat.

Thank you Lester, in fact shortly after posting this on an other site, a friend emailed a copy to the Russian Convoy Veterans group via the British Embasy.

This painting is now on its way with another, to a wall in the office of HM Consul General's office in St Petersburg. He collected it yesterday, and we had a quick browse through a few dozen other paintings and a chat about the Arctic Convoys and the future commemorative events. Next year is the 75th anniversary of Operation Dervish, the first Russian Convoy.
The exhibition at Loch Ewe seems to be going pretty well and visitor numbers are going up, as the tourist season gathers momentum.

A fine atmospheric painting Jim . I'm glad your exhibition at Loch Ewe is going well . The convoy sailors deserve the recognition .
