Hallo Fred,

Good to see you are still painting. Nice atmospheric (foggy) day on the Mersey!

I'm working on a tug painting at the moment.... one of the OTS fleet... sadly not MARINIA! I'm saving that for the day when I can spend time on a really large piece.

Sad ro report Teddy Gibbons, Ch. Eng on the old CHAUNCEY M DEPEW passed away just recently.

Best from Bermuda,

Stephen

Sorry to hear about Teddy.
Regards, Fred.

Thank you Pat and Donald, Not rendered quite accurately Pat, she would probably have had her derricks topped by the time she entered the river ready to work cargo as soon as she got alongside. Were you in her when she was trapped in the Suez Canal?..........Fred

As well as your own Tug, it's good to see a bluey. They were always my favourite as I stood on the edge of Gladstone lock. Another nice painting from you Fred, thank you.
regards
Edgar
