Oil painting, 18" x 24" on canvas, based on a photograph I took in 1968 of an F-4 Phantom fighter landing on an aircraft carrier. The image is only slightly distorted by my amateur photography; the horizon line was deliberately tilted in the original painting in an attempt to convey a feeling of sailing on a slightly rolling sea. The "yellow-shirt" men on deck are maintenance personnel or "plane captains" who are in charge of moving the aircraft on the ground. I added one "green-shirt" intruder to represent myself, an electronics guy who would not normally be authorized to appear so far aft on the deck.

P.S. It looks much better in real life.
