Best news Ive had since the start of lock down. Stephen forgot the Guys on the second Funnel! . Im not the only one who does things like that. (although in my case Im more likely to forget the funnel.!) Another cracker.

I do not believe that ship was ever so good-looking. There is magic at work here.

Hi Stephen:
Perfection, thy name is an Italian passenger ship. Rex was a splendid example and is beautifully caught here in all her glory.

I was on the road and looked at my little i phone screen and thought at first ... Wow! Stephen painted the CONTE DI SAVOIA, because he said that his work from the ship was burned a long time ago.
Then I clicked on the screen to enlarge it and surprise surprise! ... it's the REX.
The painting is incredibly strong and beautiful with a lot of sea. A painting like a dream to dive into.
Great !!!

It was only the aft guys that you had missed, but now fully finished and the buyer cannot be anything but delighted.
