Hi Dennis, I've always loved the wide flaring deck of a carrier in contrast to the narrow beam of the ship at the waterline....excellent work! Lots of good work on your blog Dennis.Thanks for all of the years you spent in the Navy too. I'm sure you miss it very much. I was Army (1st Armored Division, Germany 76-79) and I miss those days and the friends.I posted new pics of the mounting of the painting to the floater frame on my blog. Happy painting Dennis.
