There is only one thing wrong with this painting.

and that is....

That it is not 6' X 3' painted in oils on canvas and hanging prominently in the Fleet Air Arm Museum for all to see.

Thanks Chas, for your kind comment. Yesterday I got an email inviting Greta and I on a sponsored visit to New York to attend the launch of the book 'Liberty's War' to be held at the American Merchant Marine Accadamey Museum in September. I did the cover and some illustrations for the book at short notice. I have till Tuesday to decide. Unfortunately we are a pair of old crocs and not as mobile as we used to be. The Russian trip was fine as everything was geared to the WW2 Veterans, anywhere involving walking I was plonked into a wheelchair. A godsend at the airports. So we have some considering to do this weekend.
