Best of the Captain 2010 -2012

Greetings everyone,
The title might sound a little egotistical but its not meant to be that way.  Heres an example,  a rock band playing for years, hit a wall with their creativity...what do they do? They do a best of album to keep the interest out there until the creativity comes back, which it will.  Heres some stuff  not necessarily the best, but what I enjoyed doing at the time.

  1. Nice recap, Richard. I don't see the title as egotistical - in fact, it is great that you can offer what you consider your best work for our viewing pleasure. Warm regards, Dean

  11. A wonderful trip down memory lane, Cap. All these works are a masterpiece IMHO. The 1st time I visited your museum, the 1st picture above was your banner pic. I was hooked!

    I am a retired painter. If you ever decide to sell this vignette, I want to bid for it. Thanks. I consider it a treasure.

  12. Thank you very much Jay...I guess youre talking about the 1st picture...Battle honors.
    The artist and the flag easel came from Dixon. A metal flag was included, dont know how you could make a metal flag look real. A paper flag was computer generated and dipped in water to get the faded and limp look. The soldier looking over the shoulder came from Architects of War who produce soldiers with outstanding 19th century facial expressions.
    I have many hours in this piece. I'm glad you like it.

  15. I can't say which ones I prefer : they are all marvellous!
    Some are magic like the pictures of the night scenes, and I like also both cars and the plane...I remember almost all: like you say it's like looking a photos album ...

  17. Fantastic stuff Cpt., my personal favorites are the Confederate campfire, Yuengling beer sign (hoisted a few in my day), and the last of the V-8 interceptors. Great idea to look to yourself for inspiration.
