Very nice! Thanks for sharing this.
Just on the off chance this is of interest to the IOWA-buffs here: I recently shared half a picture of IOWA in her late 1980's guise via this forum. The reason for only showing half of the picture was that it was actually commissioned as a gift for one of IOWA's former commanding officers - hence it also illustrates an odd mix of consorts to which the skipper had a personal connection, either by having served in or having commanded across his 40-year career.. I didn't want somebody to recognize this and show him the piece before he received it! At any rate the 'rest' of the work is at the below link. It is oil on linen and at the smaller end of the scale for studio originals, at 400 x 200mm.
I hope you will all enjoy seeing it.
.. and with apologies for yet another shameless plug!
