"The picture has arrived and it is wonderful, Thanks."

Neil Shipton

...we wanted to tell you how impressed we are with the detail of the ship. It's beautiful... Jack took your sketch over to his mother's house ( she is 87 soon ) she took one look and said that's "his" ship. She had a lot of memories that came flooding back.....we are now having her write down her stories to keep along with the painting.

Jack and Kathy
