Presenting the painting to Susan Ford Bales

On Saturday, November 9, 2013, I was commissioned to do a Plein Air painting capturing the christening ceremony of the new Gerald R Ford aircraft carrier at the Newport News Shipyard in Virginia. Later that evening I presented the “wet” painting to president Fords daughter, Susan Ford Bales, during a dinner held at the Marriott Hotel in Newport News.
