Absolutely beautiful. I bought this as a gift and the recipients are delighted with it. I chose this because Gibraltar was where the couple were married 50 years ago. I loved the look of it on the website but in real life it is stunning. Thank you so much. I imagine it wont be the last I buy particularly from this artist.

Excellent speedy service. This was a gift for my Son’s 50th Birthday. He was absolutely delighted with it. He was born that same year and is an avid golfer, a perfect gift for him. It is brilliant. He has hung it in his office. A wonderful talking point.

Even though I knew the measurements, I found the picture small, I think also because it was costly,the exchange of money and shipping. I can’t do it again. The painting itself is lovely. Don’t want to rate it.
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.
