A retired "Navy" man, Joe served 15 years on multiple air craft carriers, one of which is "The Lexington," in this painting. Joe had been wanting to have this mural painted for 10!years! He was very specific; he wanted two Blue Angels in the sky, aircraft on board the carrier, an aircraft training plan coming in for a landing, the "Lexington" seal, among other things, and to quote Joe - the entire painting "MUST" be really, really BIG!"
Joe got his wish!!
