Great Jim! Your painting is a joy and it's good that you no longer have to work on the "Ark Royal" when i hear the news about "Charles de Gaulle" and the "Theodore Roosevelt".

Fine scene of drying her sails.

Thanks Emil. Long time since I was on the 'Ark' think I left her about 1964!. Lot of changes in 54 years . Just think, 54 years the other way from 1964 would have been 1910 look at the ships in those days.

Hello Jim,

Just about you left the 'Ark'... was my first visit to the 'Short Shirt'. I have not seen her since the new 'dock' in Greenwich. It might have been necessary, but I don't like that 'glass wave' they have built around her.

All best.. and keep well.

We’re fine here in Auchtermuchty quite out of the way, with a large garden. Number two son lives nearby so they do the shopping. All we can do is get on with it.
Stay safe to all

Our problem is Screaming and I mean screaming Kids. Yes kids make a lot of noise playing. That’s fine. But these ones scream. If one had an accident we wouldn’t be any the wiser. Roll on Schools restarting! Till then just take out my hearing aids.

I prefer engine room noise, than kids noise.

I know that everyone was a kid in our lives and childrens are the future, but now is complicated to understand when Im in my studio, if when kids are neighbors. I feel like in the middle of any Napoleon battles or Attila attack. I prefer to paint when Im on duty on board.
