superb artwork Glenn!

Excellent work Glenn!

What a wonderful honor to have your work shown at the American society of Marine Artists Northeast Regional Exhibit - so well deserving of that and more; this is so realistic and exceptional artwork which inspires and delights - congratulations!!!

The "Cruel Sea" is one of my favorite novels. Your painting captures the spirit of the ship in the story. Unlike the destroyers dodging about, HMS Compass Rose, unassuming in her weather beaten and rusted hull, plods along, faithfully doing her duty. A painting well done, sir.

Congratulations!

Unbelievably incredible!!!!!

Congratulations Glenn!!!!!!!!!

This is breath taking, and warming a "old" navy hearth. Thanks for sharing this moment in time both historical and artistic.

WOW! What gems you have here at FAA. This painting looks like you were there to capture it.

What a nice piece. I can feel the movement of the ocean. Gorgeous

Beginning with an outstanding photograph, the ability to crop and rotate the image, along with quality card stock, envelopes and box. The Best!

I bought notecards, so I don't really have a photo to upload, but thank you for having this particular image available! I have been looking for it for a number of years. The artist lost two sons in World War I. He also painted the murals in the Chapel of the Dead in the Jesuit parish in Paris where his sons are memorialized the same year he painted this image, which he later gave to a family member who was ordained as a priest. This was Pierre Teilhard de Chardin's favorite image of the Sacred Heart of Jesus . . . he gave a card of this image to a friend during World War II, and he had it on his desk when he died in New York City in 1955. If you have any knowledge of where the original painting is, I would love to know! I hope to go to France someday and would love to see the original painting.

Stunning photograph.

Artist's Description

This is the third painting in my "Ships That Never Were" series. It depicts the British, Flower Class corvette "HMS Compass Rose" protecting an allied convoy during the early years of World War II. She and her crew are the subject of Nicholas Monsarrat's finest novel: "The Cruel Sea" first published in 1951. The painting was selected to be shown at the American Society of Marine Artists Northeast Regional Exhibit from May 2008 until January 2009.
